ACSD considers moving 6th-grade to MUMS

Posted on April 3, 2017 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — The Addison Central School District board is expected to vote this June on whether to expand Middlebury Union Middle School to include grades 6-8 beginning in the fall of 2018. It’s a move some district officials believe would allow teachers to more effectively deliver International Baccalaureate Program instruction.

Currently, sixth-graders in the ACSD are taught in elementary schools in the district-member communities of Bridport, Cornwall, Middlebury, Ripton, Salisbury, Shoreham and Weybridge. MUMS serves children in grades 7 and 8.

SALISBURY — Lawmakers believe that unless the exodus of Vermont youth to other states is reversed, the Green Mountain State will lose a large chunk of its tax base — not to mention a valuable pool of employees for businesses.

“These are the (people) who fuel our economy and … who pay into the revenues in the state,” Rep. Harvey Smith, R-New Haven, said at a Legislative Breakfast in Salisbury on March 27. “It’s going to be a balancing act as to how we stabilize our economy and our population.”

SALISBURY — While the Trump administration’s effort to repeal the Affordable Care Act failed in Congress, state lawmakers at the March 27 Legislative Breakfast in Salisbury said it’s too soon to tell what, if any, short- or long-term changes are in store for Vermont’s health care system.

“It’s all up in the air,” said Sen. Claire Ayer, D-Addison, whose committee deals with health care legislation.

Van Wyck alone in rejecting proposed state budget

Posted on April 3, 2017 |
By Elizabeth Hewitt VTDigger.org



MONTPELIER — Ferrisburgh state Rep. Warren Van Wyck was the only lawmaker voting nay when the Vermont House of Representatives advanced a $5.8 billion state budget package this past Thursday.

It was a rare moment of tripartisan financial unity as the House OK’d the state finance plan for the next fiscal year, which does not raise any new taxes or fees.

The budget gained preliminary approval on a vote of 143 in favor, one opposed. It was expected to pass by a similar margin when the House gave its final approval Friday.

SHOREHAM — Abby Goodrich and Joe Murphy grew up one town away from each other. She in Shoreham, he in Orwell. Abby’s mother, Leslie Goodrich, was Joe’s teacher in elementary school.

But despite their proximity, Abby and Joe never knew each other growing up. Kids from Shoreham travel to Middlebury for middle school and high school, those from Orwell go to Fair Haven.

Instead, the two met years later at a wedding.

Abby had been hired as a wedding photographer for the event. Joe was the best man.
