WHITING — On a cold Vermont night, Julner Remy warms his spirits with recollections of his native Haiti, recollections he commits to canvas and wood with deft brushstrokes.

His paintings have recently become far more than a balm for his soul. A lot of his work is now on display at the EastView at Middlebury retirement community, where the 33-year-old Whiting resident currently works as a caregiver.

FERRISBURGH — Although a string of appeals and court cases may show that not everyone in Ferrisburgh is lovin’ it, the new McDonald’s Restaurant that will complete Champlain Oil Company’s new Route 7 development should be up and running next week, said COCO President Tony Cairns on Monday.

When the doors open under the golden arches, it will finish Cairns’ and COCO’s roughly seven-year effort to build a gas station, convenience store and restaurant on the former home of the Ferrisburgh Roadhouse and Burdick’s Country Kitchen.

Supreme Court lets PSB re-open investigation into Phase I pipeline

Posted on February 12, 2015 |
By Zach Despart



MONTPELIER — The state Supreme Court on Feb. 9 gave the green light to the Public Service Board to launch a wide-ranging second investigation into Vermont Gas Systems’ budgeting practices for Phase I of its Addison Rutland Natural Gas Project.

By granting remand, a process by which a higher court sends a case back to a lower tribunal, the Supreme Court ceded jurisdiction to the Public Service Board to consider whether to alter or revoke its December 2013 approval of the project, a 41-mile pipeline through Chittenden and Addison counties.

MONKTON — Most Vermonters would be perplexed to see Culver City, Calif., appear on their caller ID. But when that happened to Monkton Central School teacher Kate La Riviere-Gagner this past fall, she had a hunch who might be on the line.

“I was in my classroom standing by the window and my heart jumped,” La Riviere-Gagner said.

As she suspected, it was a producer from “Jeopardy!” informing her to book a flight to Los Angeles, because she’d been selected as a contestant on the popular TV game show.

VUHS-3.jpg

VERGENNES — Since the school’s founding in 1959, Vergennes Union High School graduations have divided its senior classes by gender, assigning white robes to girls and blue robes to boys and requiring them to enter the ceremony from different sides of the school gym.
