Bernie Sanders LEAD RGB.jpg

ST. ALBANS — Two years ago, Lindsay Hunn walked into an office building on South Main Street in St. Albans looking for a job in the legal world. As fate would have it, she had the address wrong and walked out as a full-time volunteer for the Vermont Democratic Party.

One year later, Hunn was hired as a field organizer in New Hampshire, making thousands of phone calls to get troops on the ground for Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders’ 2016 presidential campaign.

Hannah Bureau: Paintings on exhibit at Edgewater Gallery

Posted on May 19, 2016 |
By Addison Independent



hannah bureau 2.jpg

If you have seen her textural, softly geometric landscapes, it should come as no surprise, that painter Hanna Bureau prefers grays. Before this description brings the word “drab” to mind, know that with these grays Bureau builds vibrant impressions of a scene observed. Fields and sky are rendered in warm and cool grays, with strokes of lilac, ashen green, and blue. Bureau’s wide, fluid brush strokes, thick with paint, impart the richness in the memory of a landscape, while her palette acts as the soft haze of recollection.

ST. ALBANS TOWN — If you think rural Vermont and don’t think “technical innovation” — think again. Vermont homeowner Troy Turner became the recipient of Green Mountain Power (GMP)’s first Tesla Powerwall early this month, a cutting-edge, rechargeable lithium-ion battery that can store backup power, akin to an electric generator.

Turner is the first person in the state, and one of the first in the country, to receive the device.
