Thirty seconds at podium pay off for city man going to Democratic convention

Posted on June 20, 2016 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



Matt Birong_2101.jpg

VERGENNES — In baseball terms, Vergennes resident Matt Birong’s performance at the recent Democratic state convention in Barre was like hitting a walk-off homer while trailing in the bottom of the ninth. 

The-38-year-old owner of Vergennes eatery 3 Squares was a relative novice in the political world, faced scores of others seeking the same spot, and didn’t even get to campaign — and yet he was elected to be a delegate to next month’s Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.

CotaFarm4889.jpg

MONKTON — Brothers Greg and Rob Cota have been farming since they were old enough to reach the tractor pedals. Now, at ages 69 and 78, respectively, they are ready to sell their land and retire.

But the idea of selling their rolling acres of prime farmland to a developer is not appealing.

“I don’t want to see houses on the land, I want to see cattle on the land,” Greg Cota said. “That’s what rural Vermont is about — it’s farming.”

Douglass Reading at Rokeby cmyk.jpg

FERRISBURGH —Rokeby Museum in Ferrisbugh will host a free community reading of Frederick Douglass’ most famous speech at 3 p.m. on Sunday, July 3.

Asked to deliver a Fourth of July oration, Douglass refused. Instead, he delivered his powerful condemnation of American hypocrisy — “What to the slave is 4th of July” — on July 5, 1852. His words ring true more than 150 years later, and the speech is widely considered to be his best.

Salisbury dollhouse 2 CMYK.jpg

SALISBURY — The five-year campaign to restore the tower of the Salisbury Congregational Church was in the home stretch this spring when it hit a new snag. The clock and bell stages were repaired last season, and the bell rang out over the village for the first time in years on Christmas Eve. However, painters scraping the spire this spring discovered that it was also in serious condition. Funds were diverted from painting and other repairs to deal with the emergency.
