VERGENNES — The city of Vergennes will sign a lease this week with landowners Bill and Kristin Benton for a 2-acre parcel that has 433 feet of frontage along the Otter Creek basin’s east bank.

Aldermen — with Benton, a city council member, not participating — unanimously backed the agreement at their April 24 meeting.

The land will link the recently completed stairway down from Main Street to the river with the city’s MacDonough Drive docks.

VERGENNES — Vergennes aldermen at their April 24 meeting crossed two sites off their list of potential homes for a new city police station.

They will no longer consider a building owned by Alderwoman Ziggy Comeau at the intersection of School and Green streets, or a state-owned building on MacDonough Drive on the eastern edge of the Northlands Job Corps campus.

VERGENNES — It’s been a long time since the Vergennes Union High School softball team has been able to enjoy being in first place — the late 1990s, when the Commodores won the Metro Conference championship.

But after Tuesday’s 8-3 win over visiting Burlington, the Commodores can make that claim again: At 4-0, with three straight wins over Division I Metro teams, VUHS sits on top of the D-III standings, just ahead of Windsor (5-1).

FERRISBURGH — Kathy Douglas’ fifth-grade students at Ferrisburgh Central School are hoping the Vermont Legislature will see the light.

More specifically, the members of her class would like lawmakers to approve traffic lights at the intersection of Route 7 and Little Chicago Road, just a few hundred yards away from their school.

Local representatives Diane Lanpher (D-Vergennes) and Greg Clark (R-Vergennes) recently accepted the students’ invitation to meet with them.

Clippings: Anecdotes, data tell same story

Posted on April 26, 2012 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



Anecdotes, a single relatable story, apparently trump data.

We value stories more than unwieldy columns of numbers when we make decisions.

For example, taxes. Hey, we might be rich someday, why would we want millionaires to pay as much as their secretaries? Fantasy outweighs the reality that 99 percent of us aren’t suddenly going to join the 1 percent, really by definition.

MIDDLEBURY — Division I Burlington on this past Wednesday won both the boys’ and girls’ sides of a track and field meet hosted by Middlebury Union High School at Middlebury College, but the Tigers and the visiting Mount Abraham and Vergennes teams, all D-II squads, had highlights.

Burlington won the girls’ meet with 145 points, with MUHS (52) edging Mount Abe (46) for second and VUHS in third (9). The already small VUHS team was shorthanded because several students, including steady point-scorers, were on a school language trip.

FERRISBURGH — A part of the nation’s history — or at least a fanciful version of a local legend — will come to life at Ferrisburgh Central School on Friday morning.

At 10:30 a.m., the 17 members of kindergarten teacher Josh Brooks’ class will present their version of how American Commodore Thomas MacDonough outfoxed the British at the mouth of Otter Creek.

In the pupils’ short play, MacDonough receives help from, among others, a fictional farm boy, George Washington, and Ethan Allen and the Green Mountain Boys.
