Early in the morning on Feb. 11, either by human error or technical malfunction, a spark at a natural gas well in southwestern Pennsylvania caused a massive explosion. One man living in the area described the sound of the explosion as loud as a jet engine five feet overhead. One worker was injured; state police discovered the remains of another missing man a week later. The well was capped on Feb. 23.

ESSEX JUNCTION — Francis Bronson of Bridport has been a regular at the annual Vermont Farm Show for 30 years, and this week attended the 82nd annual fair at the Champlain Valley Expo in Essex Junction even though he has left dairy farming.

While looking over some of the show’s more than 150 agricultural exhibits, Bronson said he was impressed by some of the technological advances on display.

“There’s some innovative thought processes on some of this stuff,” he said. “I wish some of it was around when I was still going.”

Clippings: Some observations on living with cats

Posted on December 24, 2013 |

Early this month, I moved out of the farmhouse I had been renting in Cornwall and piled my possessions into the back of the Subaru for a 35-mile drive to the Old North End of Burlington. The price of gas rose by 20 cents per gallon and a freezing rain began to fall as I drove north on Route 7. My departure could not have felt more depressing.

ADDISON COUNTY — Jean Fifield and Mary Smith are arguably two of the best delivery drivers in Addison County. What other food delivery driver will check your mail and even sit with you while you eat if you’d like company?

The pair delivers for the Champlain Valley Agency for Aging’s Meals on Wheels program, which delivers hot, nutritious lunches and suppers to seniors who are unable to prepare their own meals.

VERMONT — Mary Ann Castimore of Waltham remembers the finish line in Hong Kong. In a stunning upset, the United States Dragon Boat team she was a part of flew over the finish line ahead of the Australians — the world champions and favorites for the race — in the next lane.

“Our boats drifted after we crossed the finish line and everybody stopped,” she said. “The whole Australian boat — all 22 heads just whipped and they stared at us like, ‘Who are they? What’s a Vermont?’”

Clippings by Evan Johnson: The problem with 'values' politics

Posted on October 31, 2013 |
By Evan Johnson



As a writer and a journalist for a few different publications, I find myself putting in miles on my assignments all over Vermont. On these drives, I listen to the radio, tuning the full range of the dial. I don’t listen for content, so much as the ambient sound of a human voice; be it ESPN sports banter or NPR. I was somewhere near St. Johnsbury recently when I heard a broadcast of the Values Voter Summit in Washington, D.C.

WALTHAM — If the two pegboards overflowing with ribbons and medals in John Lent’s Waltham home aren’t enough evidence of his commitment to long-distance running, then the spreadsheet he keeps of every marathon and ultramarathon he’s ever run is meticulously organized proof.
