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.

'Scaramouche: A Tribute to Queen' takes the Town Hall Theater stage this Saturday

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). Their big hair was par for the course at the time, but the band’s progressive rock sound and Mercury’s flamboyance and outrageous stage presence took audiences by surprise.

Posted on November 6, 2017 |
By John Flowers



BRISTOL — Addison Northeast Supervisory Union residents on Thursday rejected a $36.6 million renovation plan for Mount Abraham Union High School by a 1,261 to 1,168 tally.

The close, 93-vote margin of defeat has provided project proponents with a silver lining sense that a third vote could be the charm for getting five-town residents to endorse major repairs to their almost 50-year-old secondary school building.

Addison County among hardest hit by last week's storm

Posted on November 6, 2017 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



ADDISON COUNTY — As of Friday night Green Mountain Power was expecting to have service restored to all but a handful of its Addison County customers, even though 400 homes, businesses and farms were still making do without electricity at about 10 a.m.

GMP spokesperson Dorothy Schnure said the company was focusing on Addison County on Friday because only another roughly 200 of its customers elsewhere in Vermont still lacked power after Monday morning’s major windstorm turned off electricity to more than 118,000 GMP customers and snapped 100 power poles in half.

n Welch LEAD 0017.jpg

MIDDLEBURY — “It’s a mess in Washington,” Congressman Peter Welch told a group of Champlain Valley specialty crop farmers who gathered in Middlebury last week to share their wish lists for the 2018 farm bill.
