NEW HAVEN/NEW YORK CITY — Like a lot of little girls in Addison County, Zoe Rabinowitz started studying dance at age five with longtime dance teacher Patty Smith.

Today the New Haven native is living the dream as a New York City-based dancer and choreographer about to set off on a tour of Jerusalem, Japan and Korea with Yaa Samar! Dance Theatre, a dance group that she co-founded 10 years ago and of which she is the associate artistic director.

Though dancing has allowed the 31-year-old to travel the world, she always remembers where she came from.

By Andy Kirkaldy



VergennesBasin.jpg

VERGENNES — Vergennes residents this weekend can have a say on the future of their hometown, especially its downtown and Otter Creek basin — and a chance to see what Main Street bike lanes and sidewalk bulb-outs might look like.

As part of a larger, grant-supported effort to develop what officials call a “Vergennes Downtown-Basin Master Plan,” residents are invited to a pair of walks on Friday evening from the city green down to Otter Creek, and then on Saturday to demonstrations of how Main Street could be friendlier for pedestrians and bicyclists.

Act 46 school consolidation law brings new budget challenges

Posted on September 17, 2015 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — Area school directors will face some additional challenges this fall as they try to craft fiscal year 2017 budgets that meet new per-pupil spending guidelines prescribed by Act 46, the state’s new education reform law.

Act 46, passed during the 2015 legislative session, offers financial incentives to supervisory unions that agree to establish a single, consolidated K-12 school district that would be governed by a single board. But the law also calls for per-pupil spending caps during a two-year transition toward full implementation of Act 46.

CHAMPLAIN VALLEY — A landmark agreement between Vermont Secretary of Agriculture Chuck Ross and the Conservation Law Foundation (CLF) puts Addison County farmers on alert that all Vermont farms within the entire Lake Champlain watershed must get on board with the new, more stringent requirements to reduce phosphorus runoff into Lake Champlain — not just those within the most heavily polluted Missisquoi basin.

SHOREHAM — The late, great stand-up comedian George Carlin once said, “The caterpillar does all the work, but the butterfly gets all the publicity.”

That may be especially true when that butterfly is royalty, as in the “monarch,” an increasingly scarce specimen that the eight eager students in Ms. Justine Logan’s first-grade class at Shoreham Elementary School are taking pains to study, raise and release for the insect’s annual marathon flight to Mexico.
