Ferrisburgh resident David Shlansky, the principal in Shenandoah LLC, the company that owns the former Haviland Shade Roller Mill and its nearby Annex, said he now hopes in the months to come to revive plans to put shops, office space and condominiums in the two historic Canal Street properties.

Lake-Champ-Header.jpg

VERMONT — Jeff Severson has spent much of the past 50 summers at his family’s Lake Champlain camp in West Addison. But it wasn’t until two weeks ago that the born-and-raised Vermonter had ever seen blooms of the potentially toxic cyanobacteria, or blue-green algae, engulf his favorite swim and fishing spot.

While Severson and his son were fishing on June 29, his wife Lisa Windhausen, who teaches middle school science in Jericho, watched from above as Oven Bay turned from a pool of glistening glass to chunky green sludge within hours.

By Andrea Suozzo



MIDDLEBURY — If market reform measures do not pass in this year’s federal farm bill, Vermont dairy farms will have a hard time staying in business, local dairy farmers told Rep. Peter Welch, D-Vt., last Thursday morning.

Without dairy reform, said Marie Audet of Blue Spruce Farm in Bridport, “I just don’t understand how our little farms will survive this fall. The farms that were on the brink three months ago, I don’t know how they can look to the future.”

SUDBURY –– Fourteen kids and two teachers guided their canoes away from the shores of Lake Hortonia and paddled over to a small bay full of lily pads and milfoil, looking around at the different plants and wildlife and taking samples from the water.
