Bristol to vote on $1.5M stormwater project

Posted on August 20, 2009 |
By Kathryn Flagg



BRISTOL — Bristol voters will take to the polls on Tuesday, Aug. 25, to weigh in on a $1.5 million bond to fund stormwater system upgrades on North Street.

If the bond vote is approved, the town could be in line for stimulus funding that could pay for as much as half of that project. Town officials have said that if the stimulus money falls through, they won’t move forward on the stormwater improvements — but Bristol residents have to approve the bond first if the town is to be eligible for the government funds, part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.

Farmers look to alternative energy: science converts cow manure to profit for dairies

ADDISON COUNTY — Light streamed in through the paper-thin walls of the temporary shed, a small, greenhouse-like structure plunked down on a Bridport dairy farm. Here, Mark Hoffman is dabbling in alchemy.

Hoffman, a project manager for Montpelier-based Algepower, peered into shallow, plastic troughs stacked one above the other. He was between experiments, and the troughs were mostly empty, but when the system is in full swing the plastic slings are filled with murky green water and hungry algae.

MONKTON — When Monkton resident Nora Parren was casting around for a way to drum up scholarship money, the Vassar College student assumed she’d be left to writing essays until the end of time.

So when she stumbled across a contest sponsored by the Environmental Protection Agency challenging students to create videos promoting water quality, Parren was pleasantly surprised. A hobby animator, for some time she’d been making stop-motion videos in her dorm room.

Bristol teen center cultivates garden

BRISTOL — Caroline Cote, 13, is a quick study.

When she led the way down the long, narrow garden plot behind the Bristol Hub Teen Center, she rattled off the long list of plants in the garden — carrots and zucchini, lettuce and leeks, and tomatoes on the vine just starting to ripen.

In mid-August, the garden was a riot of growth. Purple and green cabbage plants had unfurled their leaves in wide circles. The broccoli was thriving. Purple beans dangled from the bean plants, waiting to be plucked, and a new round of squash flowers bloomed.

MIDDLEBURY — Nestled among his cows in Cornwall, a dairy farmer holds up a large-scale image of Switzerland crafted from pink insulation material.

Down the road, a husband-and-wife pair running a Cornwall farm stand posed with the outline of the United States. A Middlebury shopkeeper hides behind the long, boot-like silhouette of Italy, and a Burlington woman hunkers down beside the image of Africa, posted on the wall of her house.

'Cash for Clunkers' brings mixed blessing for dealers

ADDISON COUNTY — For local automobile dealerships, the “Cash for Clunkers” program has been a mixed blessing.

On one hand, the $1 billion government rebate program — which offers customers up to $4,500 if they trade in a gas-guzzling “clunker” for a more fuel efficient new car — has jumpstarted business at local dealerships. Since the program kicked off in late July, dozens of county residents have purchased new cars.

LEICESTER — The cucumber came soaring through the air in one smooth, effortless arc, landed solidly in 16-year-old Ernest Cormia’s hands, and then joined a growing pile of ripe vegetables in a five-gallon bucket at the end of the lush garden row.

“Toss me another,” Cormia called, and Bill Moore, a teacher at the Foxcroft Farm Harvest Program, hurled another across the garden.

Breaking news: USDA boosts price paid to dairy farmers

Posted on July 31, 2009 |
By Kathryn Flagg



WASHINGTON, D.C. — After weeks of pleading their case for struggling dairymen in Washington, D.C., Vermont’s Congressional delegation finally made a breakthrough Friday, when the U.S. Department of Agriculture announced that the Obama administration is taking immediate action to boost prices paid to dairy farmers.

That means that the price the federal government pays for milk and dairy products in the marketplace is set to go up for August, September and October, a price hike that the USDA estimates will increase dairy farmers’ revenue nationally by $243 million.
