RIPTON — Mary Magot began a journey 16 years ago. It started in the African nation of Sudan, led her through a civil war, a temporarily fractured household and immense hardship.

Her journey — and those of 14 other people from all corners of the globe — ended on Thursday with a meandering car ride up a serpentine Route 125, near the Robert Frost Trail, to the Ripton Elementary School, where they became citizens of the United States in a ceremony presided over by a federal judge.

BRISTOL — Even after close to two decades of efforts to get local foods into local educational institutions, words like “fresh” and “tasty” are not universally applied to school cafeteria food.

Yet school nutrition guru Kathy Alexander continues to make Farm to School a centerpiece at Bristol-area schools and this year expanded that work into Vergennes-area schools.

By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — Those seeking to obtain insurance through Vermont Health Connect (VHC) or who want to modify the plan in which they are currently enrolled have to act fast.

That’s because state and federal officials have cut this year’s VHC “open enrollment period” in half, from 12 weeks to a six-week period that began on Nov. 1 and will end on Dec. 15.

At stake is health care coverage for 2018 — Vermonters who miss the Dec. 15 deadline might have to wait until 2019 to get their coverage, according to state officials.

STARKSBORO — At its Tuesday night meeting, the Starksboro selectboard signed an option-to-lease agreement with Waterbury-based Green Lantern to develop an 150-kilowatt solar array on the town’s old landfill.

“It seems to me that it’s well positioned for a solar array,” said Starksboro selectboard Chair Susan Jefferies. “There aren’t a lot of development opportunities for that site. It’s a brownfield site.”

WEYBRIDGE — After losing its long-time director earlier this year, University of Vermont’s 139-year-old Morgan Horse Farm in Weybridge is beginning a new chapter with a new management team, a revitalized educational mission and the prospect of some capital improvements on its 212-acre campus.

New leadership is beginning to change the identity of the horse farm from what has primarily been a training and breeding facility for Morgans, to more of an educational asset and tourist magnet.

n QUEEN.jpg

Almost everyone knows Queen — the British rock band formed in 1970 with members Freddie Mercury (lead vocals, piano), Brian May (lead guitar, vocals), Roger Taylor (drums, vocals) and John Deacon (bass guitar).
