MIDDLEBURY — A major measles epidemic that has invaded 22 states has yet to breach Vermont’s borders, but if it does, Porter Hospital and state Department of Health (DOH) officials are putting procedures in place to contain the disease and provide expert care to patients.

As of this writing, the national Centers for Disease Control (CDC) had confirmed a combined total of 704 measles cases in what is being described as the worst outbreak in decades. One of the current measles hot spots is just across the border in New York.

New ACHHH director Wesley, Deborah_3201.jpg

NEW HAVEN — The Addison County Home Health & Hospice Board could have scoured the country to find a new leader for an agency seeking to rebound after an internally tumultuous year that saw the sudden exit of former Executive Director Tim Brownell.

But in the end, the board didn’t have to look beyond the ACHHH’s own headquarters off Route 7 in New Haven. The board last week announced it had picked Deborah Wesley, RN — the agency’s former vice president of clinical services — as its new executive director.

Bristol beautician retires after six decades of styling

BRISTOL — Hairstyles have come and gone, but for more than six decades Bristol Beauty Bar has seemed like forever.

Perhaps it’s the avocado green base cabinet Lucille Skeffington has used since November 1957, when she opened the shop in her home at 4 Mountain St. Or perhaps it’s the original wood-paneled walls.

“I just never had to change anything,” she said.

Forever came to an end on Saturday, however, as Skeffington, who is 91 years old, welcomed her final client, Rita Booska, who is 95.

Vergennes wants electric car charger for downtown

Posted on May 6, 2019 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — The city of Vergennes is applying for a small grant that could make a big difference for local owners of electric vehicles.

Vergennes is seeking $12,000 to establish a two-port charging station in the city’s downtown. The city council in late April authorized City Manager Matt Chabot to apply for the grant from the Vermont Department of Housing and Economic Development. If the city is awarded the grant it would have to supply a $1,200 match to complete the project, possibly by tapping the Vergennes Water Tower Fund.
