By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — What a difference a few weeks can make in Middlebury’s political scene.

No one on March 7 was interested in challenging incumbent selectboard members Brian Carpenter and Laura Asermily in their re-election bids for three-year terms.

Posted on March 16, 2017 |
By Gaen Murphree



n LincolnPlayground LEAD 0963.jpg

LINCOLN — Seven years ago a group of Lincoln Community School parents got together to raise funds to buy new playground equipment.

“I had at the time a second-grader, a kindergartener and a new born. And the play structure at the school was 25 years old, out of date, out of code. It needed to be replaced,” said Mary Beth Stilwell, a Lincoln parent and school board member.

Stillwell started that first playground committee with the idea of “just replacing the play structure.”

VERGENNES — A meticulous Monday afternoon recount at Vergennes City Hall confirmed the March 7 results of the race for city mayor: Former three-term Mayor Mike Daniels edged two-term incumbent Bill Benton, 270-265.

That margin, one that is less than 1 percent of the votes cast on Town Meeting Day, remained unchanged after two hours of painstaking counting by five members of the Vergennes Board of Civil Authority: Justices of the Peace Barry Aldinger, Lynn Pope and Rena Trepanier, and Aldermen Lowell Bertrand and Mark Koenig.

Posted on March 13, 2017 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — Addison Central School District directors have declared an impasse in negotiations for a new contract for the newly unified district’s combined 230 teachers, and the two sides will now pick an independent mediator in an effort to make progress.

Peter Conlon, chairman of the ACSD board, stressed that declaring impasse doesn’t mean talks have ended; it simply means the two sides need some assistance in resolving their differences on three major contract areas: pay increases, health coverage and length of school day.

MIDDLEBURY — It doesn’t get much more intimidating than the thought of bringing another human being into the world that is completely reliant upon you for keeping it alive.
