Lincoln skier has Olympic goal

SkiAction1.

LINCOLN — This time of year, most high school seniors are busy setting goals for the future: what college they hope to attend, which career they hope to pursue, what they want to accomplish before leaving home for good.

Sarah Jane Grundon — known to everyone but her parents as SJ — has a goal more ambitious than most. She wants to represent the United States in the Winter Olympics as a freestyle skier.

Mount Abe board looks to draft new bond proposal

Posted on November 20, 2014 |
By Zach Despart



BRISTOL — The Mount Abraham Union High School board, at their meeting Tuesday evening, performed an autopsy on the lopsided defeat of a $32.6 million bond proposal to renovate the aging Bristol school.

The board came to a consensus on the primary reason the bond failed: taxpayers were unwilling to foot the bill.

Residents of the Addison Northeast Supervisory Union’s five sending towns on Nov. 4 voted down the proposal, 3,328 to 1,239.

ADDISON COUNTY — The four local union high school boys’ soccer teams didn’t really make their mark this fall, with only Vergennes winning a postseason contest.

But each squad played a number of competitive contests, especially Coach Kevin Hayes’ 5-8-3 Commodores, who lost seven times by one goal, twice to Division II champion Rice.

Tuesday night, two-thirds of the voters defeated the proposed school bond. That is two-thirds of the community who are saying no; that they cannot afford a $33 million price tag to improve our school.

$33M bond for Mt. Abe defeated by wide margin

Posted on November 6, 2014 |
By Zach Despart



BRISTOL — Not even close. That was the story of the proposed $33 million bond to finance an ambitious renovation of Mount Abraham Union High School, which voters on Tuesday rebuked by a margin of nearly 3 to 1.

When the dust settled, 3,328 Addison Northeast Supervisory Union residents voted against the bond. Just 1,239 cast their ballots in favor of the proposal.

Editorial: Yep, $33 million bond was too much

Posted on November 6, 2014 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



The $32 million bond proposal to completely renovate Mount Abe Union High School failed dramatically. By a 3-1 margin, voters in the five-town district said “no way.”

But because the vote was so lopsided, it doesn’t serve as a barometer of how much district voters are willing to spend. That’s especially problematic if the school board is committed to presenting another bond proposal by Town Meeting 2015. To make that happen, a new proposal would have to be fleshed out and warned by the middle of January — just a bit over two months from now.

Eagle soccer clinches championship

SOUTH BURLINGTON — On Oct. 26, 2013, the No. 5 Mount Abraham Union High School girls’ soccer team had its high hopes of the program’s first-ever championship dashed.

On that day, vs. No. 5 Harwood in a Division II quarterfinal, the Eagles earned edges of 10-1 in corner kicks and 8-5 in shots on goal, but lost, 2-1, in overtime.

That loss continued frustration for a program that had lost in a semifinal in 2012, and in 2011 earned a No. 4 seed but was upset in OT by a No. 13 seed.

As the person who asked the question at the last forum held on Oct. 27. “Past behavior/history is a precursor for future behavior/history.” I asked after the board itself acknowledged that a bond in this district has never passed on the first try.
