Cornwall beef farmers grow Cesario family.jpg

CORNWALL — Cheryl and Marc Cesario, farmers of Meeting Place Pastures, purchased 90 acres from their neighbor Matt Bonner, who had conserved the land with the Vermont Land Trust in order to make it more affordable to the Cesarios.

Cheryl and Marc moved to Cornwall in 2009 when they purchased their first property, also conserved with the Vermont Land Trust, to start their family business. Before that, Cheryl and Marc had been farming in separate locations, Cheryl on a dairy in South Hero, and Marc with livestock in Massachusetts.

Bridge8105.jpg

SALISBURY — Area residents have been uttering some choice adjectives to sum up their emotions about the blaze this past Saturday that destroyed the historic covered bridge spanning the Otter Creek between Salisbury and Cornwall.

Senseless.

Tragic.

Deplorable.

And “sickening,” as voiced by Irene Barna, secretary of the Vermont Covered Bridges Society.

CornwallStu6430.jpg

CORNWALL — Stu Johnson recalled his late father’s reaction when he was first elected Cornwall’s road commissioner more than two decades ago.

“He told me, ‘Who would’ve thought all those years in the sandbox would be your on-the-job training,’” Johnson said.

As Johnson spoke he was smiling and removing some of the old toy trucks he had displayed in the no-frills office that had for years served as his home away from home — the Cornwall town garage off South Bingham Street.

By John Flowers



CORNWALL — A Cornwall resident’s generosity is resulting in an unexpected and very literal “windfall” for the Bingham Memorial School.

The resident, Cynthia Haynie, is donating a 10kW wind turbine to the school, an amenity expected to trim the elementary school’s annual electricity bill by up to $1,500 while providing a hands-on tool for students to learn about renewable energy.

CCV mother daughter left-to-right_Caitlin-McCluskey_Angela-McCluskey.jpg

MIDDLEBURY — Usually we say that the kids are “going away to college” because they’re doing just that: going away and leaving their parents behind. Not so for Caitlin McCluskey, who this past Saturday graduated from Community College of Vermont alongside her mother, Angela McCluskey.
