ADDISON COUNTY — When federal prosecutors announced last week that they had indicted at least 50 people — many of them quite wealthy — for conspiring to influence college admissions decisions through fraudulent means, Chessley Jackman, a 12th-grader at Mount Abraham Union High School, was still waiting to hear back about her own college applications.

MIDDLEBURY — Republican Gov. Phil Scott on Monday morning at American Legion Post 27 told a crowd of almost 80 residents, students and lawmakers why his proposed 2019-2020 budget would boost Vermont, with an emphasis on limiting increases to fees and taxes while growing the economy and the state’s population.

Afterward Scott fielded questions about issues, notably climate change and health care, and repeatedly stated preferences for incentives over what he called potentially costly mandates.

Starksboro is rallying around its historic meeting house

Posted on March 18, 2019 |
By Christopher Ross



Starksboro mtg house_4685.jpg

STARKSBORO — During a tour of the Starksboro Village Meeting House last Thursday the sun cut through the clouds and struck the south side of the building full-on. In the cold quiet sanctuary, whose stained-glass windows converted that sunlight into a sudden holy glow, it almost felt like the historic old structure had taken a breath.

Only a tiny bit of poetic license is needed to suggest — at least after this year’s town meeting — that this was a sigh of relief.

TM Ripton IMG_7806.jpg

MIDDLEBURY — On Saturday, March 2, Jeff Fortin stood to speak at Monkton’s 2019 town meeting. “How many of you here are under the age of 40?” he asked. 

About six people raised their hands. 

“In 30 years, if this continues, will we have a town meeting?” Fortin asked.

It’s a question that others in Vermont are asking, particularly in light of trends that take some voting out of the meetings and put them into voting at polls.
