ADDISON COUNTY — Vermont Gas Systems and International Paper Co. on Wednesday announced a $70 million pact through which the South Burlington-based utility would supply natural gas to the paper company’s Ticonderoga, N.Y., mill as soon as 2015.

The agreement, contingent on approval by the Vermont Public Service Board, calls for a 10.5-mile pipeline to be built under Lake Champlain as an offshoot of the Addison Natural Gas Project that has already been pitched to extend natural gas service south from Chittenden County into Vergennes and Middlebury.

Dead Creek Wildlife Day.jpg

ADDISON — A shower and some drizzle failed to dampen the spirits of the 340 people who attended the 11th Dead Creek Wildlife Day on Saturday, Oct. 6. Beginning at 7, the bird-banding demonstration at the Dead Creek Route 17 access area was popular with family groups, who got to see migrating yellow-rumped warblers, blackpoll warblers and two peregrine falcons up close. The Big Sit, taking place nearby, logged 38 bird species through the day from a 17-foot circle. A special bird walk for beginning birders and demonstrations of working retrievers were also well attended.

Dairy farmers lose federal safety net

Posted on October 8, 2012 |
By Michelle Monroe (St. Albans Messenger)



ST. ALBANS — When the U.S. House of Representatives adjourned on Sept. 28 without passing a new Farm Bill, it not only left dairy farmers without a safety net, it raised the specter of chaos in agricultural markets.

In effect, Congress’s failure to act could trigger a so-called permanent law that, it is estimated, could raise the parity price of milk to the $40 per hundredweight (cwt.) range.

leaonardbarrett7995.jpg

ADDISON COUNTY — Leonard Barrett can remember when he moved to his East Street farm in Bridport in 1970 with his parents and his brother. There were eight dairy farms on the street.

Today, his is the last one. By the end of next week, there won’t be any.

Across the nation, a confluence of factors is putting family-owned dairies — long the backbone of many rural American towns — out of business.

CORNWALL — Each month, a growing group of women in Addison County get together for lunch.

But not just any lunch. The meals are hosted by the first Vermont chapter of Dining for Women, a national charity that raises money for women’s groups around the world.

Marion Leonard, a kindergarten teacher at Mary Hogan Elementary School in Middlebury, and Mary Gill, a school nurse there, initiated Addison County’s chapter. The group has been meeting monthly since April, and is growing fast.

National dairy trends taking toll on local farmers

Posted on October 1, 2012 |
By Xian Chiang-Waren



paulaudy7136.jpg

ADDISON COUNTY — With grain prices sky-high and milk prices dropping, a few family-owned Addison County dairy farms are closing their doors this fall.

Paul Audy of New Haven and John Roberts of Cornwall, both in their early sixties, cited a confluence of forces that prompted each of them to get out of the business they had been in for decades: the increasing financial challenges of running a medium-sized herd, the tumultuous market exacerbated by the dairy pricing regulations and the toll of working long hours for years on end.
