Editor's note: This story was updated after its original posting by changing the wording from "does not require any increase in fees and rates" to "does not require any increase in prices." Hospital officials fine tuned our understanding of hospital jargon by informing us that "rates and fees" does not mean the same thing as "prices" in the vocabulary of hospital budgeting.

Whiting residents up in arms after neighbor opens gun range

WHITING — Some residents of the Stickney Road neighborhood in Whiting are fed up with the sound of gunfire coming from one resident’s shooting range, which they and a town official say is being operated illegally as a business.

“There have been occasions where target shooting starts at 6:45 a.m. and other times he shoots until 8:30 p.m. The constant gunfire all day is stressful for many animals in the neighborhood. Our golden retriever Bella shakes uncontrollably and hides in the closet,” said Owen Kant, who lives at 212 Stickney Road.

Most of us have a healthy fear of the creatures lurking in the depths of the deep blue sea. And with good reason. We can’t breathe underwater; we can’t out-swim a predator; we don’t have sonar or any cool geo-location tech in our anatomy; and to top it off salt water tastes bad, stings your eyes and it’s often cold. Our squishy, land-loving, air-breathing bodies just aren’t made for the sea.

And I, for one, am quite content to keep my tasty little toes out of the salt water and away from any snapping teeth.

Flood inundates New Haven acreage; farmer copes with loss of most crops

By Gaen Murphree

Addison County residents, a rainy summer means fewer picnics or fewer dips in a favorite swimming hole. But for the county’s 800-some-odd farms, bad weather can be a make-or-break proposition.

Following days of rain, the New Haven River jumped its banks on July 1, flooding much of Golden Well Farm and Apiaries in New Haven, ruining most of its vegetable crop.

“We lost basically about 80 percent of what we had planted this year,” said Golden Well farmer Nicole Burke.
