Feds give needed waiver for Vermont Gas pipeline

Posted on October 2, 2014 |
By Addison Independent



ADDISON COUNTY — The federal agency responsible for regulating interstate energy projects has granted a waiver that gives New York and Vermont, the two states through which Phase II of Vermont Gas Systems’ Addison Rutland Natural Gas Project would run, authority to approve or reject the plan.

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission issued a ruling Sept. 26 that Phase II complies with the Natural Gas Act, which prohibits the construction of a natural gas pipeline in an area already served by natural gas.

Posted on October 2, 2014 |
By Zach Despart



BRISTOL — Downtown Bristol is a little spiffier — and safer for pedestrians — now that a renovation of the Prince Lane area is complete.

The $300,000 project was completely financed through state, federal and private grants. Taxpayers did not shoulder any of the burden. Construction firm Wright and Morrisey, of South Burlington, broke ground in July and completed the project last week.

Burlington Progressive Dean Corren wants to prove the pundits wrong. The Middlebury College graduate (class of 1976) is stumping for votes in hopes of unseating incumbent Lt. Gov. Phil Scott, R-Berlin, whom the Addison Independent will also interview for an upcoming issue of the paper.

Do solar arrays qualify for current use tax benefits?

Posted on October 2, 2014 |
By Zach Despart



ADDISON COUNTY — As new solar arrays pop up around Addison County, and a litany of others await Public Service Board approval, some town officials and residents are wondering how much tax revenue these solar projects will generate.

One question many have is whether the land used for solar arrays can be enrolled in “current use,” a designation that decreases the assessment value of farm and forestland, and thus lowers property tax bills.

Century-old church gets colorful facelife

Posted on October 2, 2014 |

MIDDLEBURY — For more than 110 years, the majestic St. Mary’s Church has stood as a spiritual beacon at the base of the College Street ascent into the heart of the Middlebury College campus. Those who travel past the church can’t help but admire its regal stone facades and its vibrant, stained glass windows.

But what passersby haven’t seen during the past month are a litany of repairs being performed inside the church, mostly plasterwork and painting that when completed will restore the building’s expansive worship hall to its former glory.

MIDDLEBURY — Rebekah Chamberlain was disappointed when she showed up for her first week of classes as a high schooler. Last year as an eighth-grader in middle school, she’d been told she could buy locally produced Monument Farms milk in the Middlebury Union High School cafeteria.

But when lunchtime came around last month, Monument Farms milk was nowhere to be found.

“It’s, like, the best milk,” said Chamberlain, 14, of Bridport.
