Editorial: The crazy thing about Mt. Abe's $32.6 million bond is that it's not all crazy

Posted on October 23, 2014 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



Tour the Mount Abraham Union High School and Middle School facility and you come away with one distinct impression: it’s a building in need of significant repair.

First and foremost I am writing this representing myself only. If what I am saying rings true with anyone else then it will serve as a reminder that you are not alone in your thoughts.

Second, I would like to acknowledge and thank all the folks on the building advisory committee for their long hours and hard work. My remarks are in no way meant to downplay your findings, only to express my opinion.

Posted on October 23, 2014 |
By Jim Feldhousen



I am responding to information that was sent out on the Mount Abe Renovation Project (air quality, tandem classrooms, access to the auditorium, pool, gym and library, etc.).

It is proposed that we would spend $32.6 million to add discretionary, nice-to-have, features for Mount Abe. Our property taxes are out of control and we still spend time and money figuring out how to spend more.

Posted on October 31, 2011 |
By Andrea Suozzo

WHITING — There’s been a lot to celebrate recently at the Whiting Community Church, not the least of which was a series of large, unexpected anonymous donations.

To start with, there was the church’s 200th birthday bash on Oct. 1, which drew more than 200 people despite rainy weather and raised $600.

People turned out to the 40-member church to eat, compete in three-legged races and a cross-cut saw tournament, attend services, bob for apples, watch the fireworks and, said Pastor Billy Jones, have a lot of fun.

By John S. McCright



MIDDLEBURY — The closing of Middlebury’s Bakery Lane at its northern entrance (fronting Main Street), which was due to begin Monday, Sept. 12, has been put off, probably until next spring.

The imminent closure of the downtown street to accommodate repairs to the brick façade of the Dyer Block was announced last Friday.
