FERRISBURGH — Neighbors of an almost completed Ferrisburgh manure pit are upset about its potential impact on their quality of life and about the pit approval process, and they have protested to the Agency of Agriculture, the Ferrisburgh selectboard and their elected state representatives.

The farmer and state officials say the pit not only follows all regulations, but it is environmentally sound and sited as far from neighbors as is practical.

The eight-year-old charitable venture, run by members of the Women of Wisdom organization, has in the first seven months of 2015 given away more than $30,000 that was raised from the sales of donated furniture, decorations and other household goods out of its Ryan Block storefront.

By Gaen Murphree



NEW HAVEN — Some residents and elected officials are looking for answers to some basic questions from Anbaric Transmission about the company’s proposal to build a converter station at the New Haven VELCO substation to connect a 400 megawatt power line to the New England electric power grid.

The need for answers is particularly acute in a town that, in the words of a resident at an informational meeting last week, increasingly feels “like a dumping ground” for energy projects.

City alderman, prominent veterinarian Joe Klopfenstein to leave state for Oregon job

Posted on September 3, 2015 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



klopfenstein, joe.jpg

VERGENNES — Vergennes alderman and well-known area large-animal veterinarian Joe Klopfenstein will later this fall pull up his Vermont stakes after 30 years and leave for a teaching job with Oregon State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine.

Klopfenstein, as much a fixture on the Vergennes musical scene as on the 33 dairy farms he serves with his veterinary partner, Annie Murphy, said he was made an offer that was too good to refuse — in part because he and his wife Nancy’s two sons both live in Oregon.

Film festival draws raves in its debut

By John Flowers



FilmFestival0754.jpg

MIDDLEBURY — If the first-ever Middlebury New Filmmakers Festival (MNFF) were to be judged by the rating scale coined by the late movie critics Gene Siskel and Roger Ebert, it would certainly earn “two thumbs up.”

Way up.

The festival, which ran last Thursday through Sunday, exceeded expectations for attendance, film submissions and the enthusiasm with which it was embraced and supported by the community, according to MNFF founder and board President Lloyd Komesar, who on Monday was already thinking ahead to next year’s edition.

Posted on August 31, 2015 |
By John Flowers



CORNWALL — Cornwall residents on Thursday will get a chance to weigh in on a proposed bylaw that could give the community some control over future solar arrays pitched in town.
