New faces, programs on tap at ACSD as school district phases in International Baccalaureate

Posted on August 27, 2018 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — “New beginnings” is certainly an apt term to describe this Wednesday’s resumption of classes in the Addison Central School District.

Students from the seven district-member towns will be greeted by a faculty that includes 32 new teachers. And many children will be adjusting to a new way of learning, through the International Baccalaureate (IB) program.

ADDISON COUNTY — Each Tuesday morning just before 9 a.m., Dick Thodal arrives at the Congregational Church of Middlebury, walks upstairs to the main prayer area, and continues on even further up a narrow, white staircase, tucked to the left of the organ pipes. Clad in his red suspenders, he climbs the old wooden steps inside the steeple until he reaches the boxy room where the town clock ticks along.

VERGENNES — When Addison Northwest School District students return to school this Wednesday they might not see dramatic changes, but district officials believe work this summer, funded by the $7.63 million bond voters approved in March, will make them safer and more comfortable in their schools.

Certainly, said ANWSD Superintendent Sheila Soule, the project came in on budget and on time: The district is ready to welcome its students.

“Everything went as planned, and we’re fully prepared to have our kids back,” Soule said.

Bryant joins Lincoln selectboard Ellie3.jpg

LINCOLN — The Lincoln selectboard has a new member, effective immediately.

Ellie Bryant was appointed by the selectboard this past Tuesday, Aug. 21, to replace James Needham, who resigned on Aug. 7 for personal reasons. Needham had served on the selectboard since his election as a write-in candidate in 2015.

“Ellie is well-qualified, and she’ll be a good fit,” said selectboard chair Bill Finger.

Orwell braces for new Act 46 vote, new fight

Posted on August 23, 2018 |
By John Flowers



ORWELL — The multi-year saga of determining whether Orwell continues to independently govern its village school, or cedes that control to an 18-member district board, will likely be laid to rest by a referendum this November to be fielded by voters in the communities of Orwell, Castleton, Benson, Hubbardton, West Haven and Fair Haven.

But there are a few key hitches in this upcoming vote.

First, votes in that election will be comingled, and thus not allow Orwell residents to defeat the measure independently, as it has on three previous occasions.

Pesky mice seem to be everywhere; rodent boom raises Lyme fear

AubuchonCat8085.jpg

ADDISON COUNTY — It may be the height of summer, but mice and other rodents in Vermont are acting like it’s autumn, or even winter.

Months ahead of schedule they’ve begun to nest in cars, lawnmowers and houses, where they settle into the walls and crank out babies. At night they skitter through the rafters, clickety-click, gnaw on electrical wiring and creep through kitchens, leaving trails of droppings.

And county residents have had enough.

LINCOLN — Jim Brown has built it and they have come.

This summer Lincoln residents and passersby may have noticed a new addition on River Road, a white farm stand shining like a tiny beacon of hope a few steps from the United Church of Lincoln.

There’s no price list, no honor system, no jar for dollar bills. Instead anyone and everyone is encouraged to donate their surplus vegetables or to take what they need. The sign out front reads “Take It or Leave It Farm Stand.”
