Williamson, a 68-year-old Burlington resident and small-town Minnesota native, was a dedicated Rokeby volunteer long before becoming its leader.

Fish kid Chase Stokes pike Resized9520170717951328321 cmyk.jpg

FERRISBURGH — Chase Stokes was no mere novice when he landed a state record carp this past spring. He had been fishing for almost a decade when he hauled in a 33.25-pound carp that measured 40 inches in length from Otter Creek in Panton this past April.

It took skill to land a fish that was nearly half as large as his own 76-pound body.

“I’ve been fishing since I was one-and-a-quarter,” the Ferrisburgh 11-year-old said in a recent interview.

Chase is a bit of a phenom when it comes to fishing, but he likes to hunt, as well.

Expert to explain invasive lake weeds on Aug. 12

Posted on August 7, 2017 |
By Addison Independent



Lake weeds waterchestnut use this.jpg

NORTH FERRISBURGH — The summer of 2016 saw near-record low water levels in Lake Champlain due to drought conditions. Those conditions, following a winter of reduced ice cover, produced extreme weed growth along the shoreline. The proliferation of weeds made it difficult, and at times impossible, for residents and visitors to enjoy boating, swimming and other water activities. Although this summer has been much wetter than last, with less nuisance from weeds, the overall increase in weed growth has been apparent in the past several years and will likely continue.

FERRISBURGH — The Ferrisburgh selectboard on Tuesday agreed on a $337,500 deal to sell the town-owned 34.91-acre parcel at the junction of Routes 7 and 22A to Andrew Peterson of Monkton, owner of Peterson Quality Malt.

Peterson plans to build a 10,000-square-foot, barn-like malt-processing house and to grow barley on the land.
