MIDDLEBURY — A Sunday soccer tournament created by a Middlebury teen raised $1,499.50 for Grassroot Soccer, a nonprofit organization dedicated to fighting the spread of the HIV/AIDS virus in Africa.

Organizer Kelsey Smith, 14, herself an active and accomplished player in the sport, said the first of what she hopes will become an annual “Midd For Kids” event was a success, especially with the late addition of adult teams to the Fucile Field event pushing the tally higher.

Games always prove gripping

Posted on August 9, 2012 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



As usual, the Olympics have hooked me. No, I haven’t watched the London Games 24/7. The need to stain our deck, get our new desktop computer up to speed and other household chores have gotten in the way. Oh, and they actually expect me to show up for work, too. The nerve.

Still, my family and I have watched a fair amount, some live on our desktop, some painfully parceled out by NBC in primetime, and some recorded on our DVR. The DVR is great because it allows us to skip through video of gymnasts and swimmers when they were kids, not to mention Super Pac ads.

Ferrisburgh taxpayers see rates decrease

Posted on August 6, 2012 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



FERRISBURGH — Despite at least modest increases in town spending and in the Ferrisburgh Central School and Vergennes Union High School budgets, Ferrisburgh’s 2012-2013 property tax rates dropped from this past year.

Ferrisburgh’s new residential rate stands at $1.6276 per $100 of assed value — 10.58 cents lower than the 2011-2012 rate.

That decrease translates to a tax bill that is about $200 lower for a Ferrisburgh home assessed at $200,000, assuming its owners are not eligible for property tax relief.

CASTLETON — The Addison County American Legion baseball team fell short of its ultimate goal when Essex eliminated AC from the state championship tournament on Sunday, 11-1, but the local nine enjoyed a strong summer.

AC won twice at the state tournament after earning the No. 2 seed in the Northern Division with a 12-4 record, in the process erasing some of the sting of the team’s 2011 tournament performance — AC lost twice and was the first squad ousted.

Owners give Vergennes landmark a makeover

vergcupola0286.jpg

VERGENNES — Early this spring, the original plan for one of the most prominent pieces of the Vergennes skyline called for a paint job.

That’s when Tim and Liz Ryan, owners of the Ryan Block, a Main Street landmark that has borne their family name since a previous generation bought the 172-year-old building in 1965, asked Cornwall’s Jonathan Hescock for cosmetic work on the cupola atop their three-story structure.
