MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury College and Middlebury town officials have abandoned preliminary plans announced this spring to build a community biomass-fired power plant that would have powered college and town facilities. But representatives from the town and the college are gearing up instead to explore a new collaboration for a “biomass purchasing cooperative” and community renewable energy fund.

Tough times push Addison dairy farm under

ADDISON — At the entrance to the DeVries family’s Dairydale Farm in Addison, there’s a sign up announcing to passersby that this tidy spread is a Vermont “Dairy of Distinction.”

The sign may still be there, but the farm’s 150 cows are gone.

Sam and Dave DeVries, brothers and partners in the Dairydale operation, milked their herd one last time on an afternoon in mid-June, and then ambled outside among the large crowd to watch their livelihood go up for auction.

County, schools brace for swine and seasonal flus

ADDISON COUNTY — Every year in the United States, anywhere from five to 20 percent of the population gets the flu, and more than 200,000 individuals are hospitalized from complications from seasonal flu.

But the buzz this year isn’t about the seasonal flu. It’s about the flu caused by the H1N1 virus, which was first detected in individuals in the United States in April. In June the World Health Organization signaled that a pandemic of the novel H1N1 flu was under way.

SALISBURY — On Tuesday morning, Pennsylvania residents Pat Murray and Jenn Dilworth marked Vermont’s historic decision to legalize same-sex marriage with a small ceremony on the dock of Dilworth’s parents’ summer home in Salisbury.

On a crisp, sunny morning, and against the backdrop of the picturesque Lake Dunmore, Dilworth, 35, and Murray, 50, exchanged vows officiated by Middlebury justice of the peace Peg Martin, joining some of the first same-sex couples in the state to tie the knot this week.

Apiaries busy in their sweetest season

MIDDLEBURY — For veteran beekeepers at Champlain Valley Apiaries in Middlebury, late summer is the sweetest season.

It’s now, after all, that a year’s worth of hard work pays off. Beekeepers last week began extracting honey from the business’s 1,200 colonies, which dot Vermont from Whiting north to the Canadian border. In a time when honeybees are falling prey to more and more stresses — like parasitic mites, pesticides and mono-crop diets — the act of making honey is a welcome reminder that in some places, like Vermont, honeybees are hanging on.

Champlain's storytellers: Shoreham residents share tales from the lake

SHOREHAM — The Swinton sisters still remember the night in the early 1950s when a tugboat on Lake Champlain ran a barge aground on a sandbar, not far from the family’s home in West Bridport.

It was late, and the tugboat’s crew came over to the Swinton home to use the telephone — several times, as Peggy (Swinton) Clark, now 71, remembers it.

One thing led to another, and after several calls, the crew made plans to take their tug and head for Port Henry, N.Y., where the tugboat could make arrangements to have the stranded barge dislodged from the sandbar.

Changes in the field: More women, young grads fill the shoes of retiring large animal vets

web_vetanddude.jpg

ADDISON COUNTY — Annie Starvish has a suitor.

The heifer tags along as the veterinarian makes the rounds in the free stall barns at the Vorsteveld Farm in Panton, where she is out doing “preg checks.” Periodically, Starvish and farmer Rudy Vorsteveld throw their arms wide, corralling one of the heifers into a stall. Then, after a gentle, reassuring pat to the animal’s hip, Starvish inserts a gloved hand into the cow’s rectum. Soon after, her arm disappears entirely.

Local producers voice concern over food safety bill

Posted on August 21, 2009 |
By Kathryn Flagg



ADDISON COUNTY — A bill passed late last month by the U.S. House of Representatives could take steps to improve the safety of American food. Local foods advocates say the goal is laudable, but if it makes it into law provisions of the bill would place unfair burdens on small farmers and food producers in Vermont.
