Posted on January 18, 2018 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — Flooding due to frozen pipes in the Vergennes Union High School sprinkler system has twice struck the building, most recently on Monday in the main VUHS hallway — but more seriously back on Jan. 2, when water damage to the school’s main gymnasium floor will put the gym mostly out of service for the next six weeks.

On Monday, a sprinkler pipe froze and then burst over the VUHS health office, just off the main hallway connecting the school’s two wings, at about 5:30 p.m.

MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury-area entrepreneurs and educators will spend the next few months gauging community support for establishing a “makers’ space” at the Patricia A. Hannaford Career Center.

By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — The Addison Northwest School District Board on Wednesday agreed to propose a district-wide spending plan of $21,106,261 that if approved by voters on Town Meeting Day would cut current spending by about $10,000.

Because of a projected statewide school tax rate increase of 9.4 cents that budget would still increase the ANWSD property tax rate by 8.33 cents, according to preliminary district estimates provided to the board. Those estimates still hinge on factors that will be determined outside the district.

High Pond Post Card_CMYK.jpeg

BRANDON/HUBBARDTON — The former High Pond Mountain Ski Area that straddles the Brandon-Hubbardton town line is getting a facelift, thanks to a high-end restoration by new owners Peter and Karen Dartley.

Work began in earnest almost immediately after the couple bought the 330-acre parcel for $1.3 million in 2016.

The McKernon Group of Brandon, led by Kevin Birchmore, was hired to do the construction, and Selin and Selin Architecture in Shelburne did all of the design work.

Ode to Lab Lily cmyk .jpg

Editor’s note: Lawrence Jones of South Starksboro wrote this piece about Chris Marion’s black Lab “Lilly.”

I am no stranger to death. I have buried many people and honored more in services dedicated to their memories. I have sat with those in their last moments. I have hugged many four-footed companions as they drifted off to sleep, never to reawaken in this world.
