BRIDPORT — Rock Dust Local LLC, a Bridport company founded by Tom Vanacore, last week shipped out 80 tons of freshly broken Addison County shale mixed with biochar — enough to cover 40 acres of Champlain Valley farm fields.

Vanacore is betting the dark gray mixture will convert excess phosphorus into mineral form and prevent it from making its way into Vermont streams and ultimately Lake Champlain.

But don’t despair. People like Vilma Smith are proof that even though life changes, it is still beautiful.

MIDDLEBURY — Lt. Gov. David Zuckerman is asking voters to give him another two years to advance a political agenda that includes a livable wage, a Vermont-branded milk industry that could help struggling dairy farmers, advances in high-speed Internet and cell phone coverage, and passage of a law to regulate and tax recreational marijuana in a way that would raise money for education and economic development advances.

Posted on October 29, 2018 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — The long-term solution to the occasional, but persistent, problem of the Vergennes wastewater collection system overflowing into Otter Creek could be a large holding tank — or tanks — to collect stormwater that can overwhelm a key pump station.

That’s what Vergennes wastewater plant supervisor Rick Chaput and public works head Jim Larrow told the city council at its Oct. 23 meeting.

Storm cafe to close CMYK.jpg

MIDDLEBURY — It’s a storm that many Addison County residents had hoped would rage on, unabated.

But unable to extend their lease in the historic Stone Mill building in Middlebury’s Frog Hollow, Storm Café owners John and Beth Hughes have decided to end the restaurant’s 25-year run after the last meal clears the kitchen on Nov. 11.

“It’s really hard,” John Hughes said during a recent interview. “If I could stay in this location, I wouldn’t be done.”

SOUTH LINCOLN — Driving around Vermont in late October has always presented Jim Apgar with some unusual technical challenges. It’s not the truck or the roads or the routes — they’re fine. It’s not the tools of his trade as a contractor.
