A committee charged with researching a prime location for a new firehouse last month recommended to the selectboard that it be built on West Street. The site contains portions of the Bristol Recreation Club and a plot owned by Ed and Suzanne Shepard.

ShakespeareintheBarn1381.jpg

BRISTOL — At the barn at Baldwin Creek, the curtain will soon fall on a summer tradition for the final time. For 18 summers, Shakespeare in the Barn at Mary’s has staged plays in the makeshift theater, but this year will be the last.

It’s not dwindling attendance or financial woes that are the cause — in fact, organizers expect a full house for every performance this year. Rather, the folks who put on the plays said it was just time to call it quits.

ST. GEORGE — A St. George landowner who lives along the route for Phase 1 of the Addison-Rutland Natural Gas project is at odds with Vermont Gas Systems over how much the company should pay to build the natural gas pipeline across his land.

Philip Beliveau is in the process of subdividing his 58-acre parcel into 19 parcels for a housing development, but Vermont Gas has assessed the value of his property as a singular parcel, and offered an easement payout based on that sum.

Mount Abe raising funds to build a new composter

Posted on July 7, 2014 |
By Zach Despart



BRISTOL — Students at Mount Abraham Union High School are raising funds for a composting system at the school that will allow cafeteria food waste to be used for the school’s community garden.

The new composting system — which student organizers hope to have in place as soon as later this summer — will mean the school will send less solid waste to landfills, and that food waste can instead nourish the 600 pounds of vegetables Mount Abe’s garden produces annually.

LINCOLN — Chris Bohjalian thrives on dread.

This isn’t to say the Lincoln author, whose 17th novel, “Close Your Eyes, Hold Hands,” will debut next week, harbors a morbid fascination with dread — in fact, he’s an affable guy.

But he relies on it, the ever-present feeling that something is or is about to be terribly wrong, to drive the action in his novels and keep readers turning pages.
