FERRISBURGH — Work to install 186 non-reflective, 10-foot-high solar panels along Route 7 next to Vergennes Union High School could begin as soon as September, according to the owner of the 16-acre parcel that will house what he said will be, at least for a time, the largest such project north of New Jersey.

Burlington developer Ernie Pomerleau, longtime owner of the Ferrisburgh tract along Route 7’s west side, is a principal investor in the project, known as Addison Solar Farm.

FERRISBURGH — A summary judgment issued on July 16 by Environmental Court Judge Thomas Durkin proved to be a split decision.

Champlain Oil Company may not proceed as planned with a convenience store, gas station and fast-food restaurant on Route 7 in Ferrisburgh because the project lacks sufficient acreage to conform with Conservation District zoning on some of its lot.

FERRISBURGH — The Lake Champlain Maritime Museum on July 17 will officially unveil its new Hazelett Watercraft Center, a structure that will permanently house the LCMM’s growing collection of boats, including the 35-foot-long ice yacht “Storm King.”

The Storm King and the new center in which it is located are both gifts of longtime LCMM supporters Bill and Dawn Hazelett. Bill Hazelett — the founder of Hazelett Strip-Casting of Colchester — was an avid sailor and longtime owner of the Storm King. He died late last month at the age of 91.

FERRISBURGH — When Erik Andrus began milling his own flour, the Ferrisburgh farmer and baker noticed a sharp spike in his electricity bill.

His mill — imported from Europe, and one of the most energy efficient models available — was running for 12 and sometimes 16 hours a day, grinding the wheat that would soon be turned into bread. The electricity bill at Boundbrook Farm and the Good Companion Bakery jumped as much as 50 percent.

FERRISBURGH — Gerianne Smart first got to know Walter Hacks in the milking parlor of a Waterbury Center dairy.

Moving among the cows, dairy farmer George Woodard told his friend about Hacks in fits and spurts: The fictional character was 11 years old, a tenacious Vermont farm boy infatuated with Westerns and a speed demon on a bicycle.

It turned out that Hacks and his story had been rattling around in Woodard’s head for some time — and it wasn’t long before Smart, a Ferrisburgh resident, was equally infatuated.
