Ebel followed a winding path to the VUES classroom that has been her professional home for the past 21 years and now for just a few days more — she will step down at the end of the school year.

When I sat down recently with soon-to-retire Ferrisburgh Central School teacher Alana Lilly, I asked her the standard question about the highlights of her 30 years at the school.

VERGENNES — While Vergennes nears a deal with Encore Redevelopment for a 150-kilowatt solar array near its city sewer plant, the Burlington firm has told the Ferrisburgh selectboard that further research showed its proposal for a 500-kw array on town-owned land was not feasible.

In Vergennes, aldermen and Encore could sign a deal as soon as this week for an array that could save the city at least $4,000 a year off its power bill for the next two decades.
