City's municipal tax rate remains level

Posted on July 1, 2010 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — After learning they were working with a $180,000 budget surplus, Vergennes aldermen on Tuesday kept the municipal portion of the city’s tax rate level at 60.3 cents while also adding money into the 2010-2011 budget for more paving and for raises for city employees.

Aldermen did not pin down an exact general fund budget because the exact staff raises have yet to be determined, but — exclusive of the fee-based sewer budget — Vergennes spending for the fiscal year that runs from this July through June 30, 2011, will probably land at a little less than $1.69 million.

ADDISON COUNTY — The high school softball season ended in heartbreaking fashion for the four local teams: All suffered losses in winnable playoff games, Otter Valley, Middlebury and Mount Abraham in Division II and Vergennes in D-III.

Yet each had much to be proud of: OV, MUHS and Mount Abe earned top-four seeds in D-II, and VUHS doubled its regular-season win total from the year before and produced its best season in more than a decade.

Recent games show baseball truly unique

Posted on June 24, 2010 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



Baseball is just different. A lot of it is the game’s sheer unpredictability, combined with downtime between delivery of pitches that allows for speculation, strategy and — a fan favorite — second-guessing.

VERGENNES — Officials of the John W. Graham Emergency Shelter are working toward a major renovation of the shelter’s original building in Vergennes, which sits prominently at the intersection of Main Street and Monkton Road.

On June 8, the Vergennes City Council agreed to support the homeless shelter board’s application for a $300,000 Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) that could pay for most, but far from all, of a project that would follow sensitive historic preservation guidelines.

MIDDLEBURY — In its season opener on Thursday, the Addison County American Legion baseball team displayed the explosive offense and solid pitching and defense that the local nine hopes will carry them to the Northern Division playoffs and beyond this summer.

The result at the Middlebury College field was a 9-3 win over S.D. Ireland that AC broke open with a five-run fifth inning that made a winner of reliever Sean Harrison, who tossed 3.1 steady innings and knocked in two runs, including one in the big rally.

Eagles take wild game, another title (with slideshow)

MONTPELIER — The Mount Abraham Union High School baseball team started 2010 without its No. 1 pitcher, the 2009 Metro Conference Player of the Year, and another three-year starter, also the team’s 3-4-5 hitters: They were among the six seniors who graduated from the 2009 squad that won the Metro title and helped Mount Abe reach the Division II final for the fourth straight year.

And when the Eagles didn’t score a run in three scrimmages during a preseason trip to Florida, longtime Mount Abe coach Jeff Stetson admitted even he was not sure about his team’s prospects.
