BURLINGTON — The Vermont Public Service Board (PSB) this week issued a Certificate of Public good to the New England Clean Power Link, a high power line that would transmit 1,000 megawatts of wind and hydro power from the Canadian border to a transfer station at Ludlow.

Ninety-eight miles would be buried under Lake Champlain, including a stretch running near Ferrisburgh and Panton and then hugging the shorelines of Addison, Bridport, Shoreham and Orwell. The Clean Power Link would veer onto land south of Addison County, in Benson.

Posted on January 7, 2016 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — The Vergennes Union High School board on Monday looked at a $10.3 million budget proposal for next year that, despite a proposed spending increase of only $37,000, could increase the VUHS tax rate by about 20 percent.

Chris Bohjalian’s grandparents survived the Armenian genocide and emigrated to America. But like many a child of immigrants, his father, Aram, wanted to assimilate as much as possible.

“My dad grew up speaking Armenian, but I was 14 years old before I discovered he could speak Armenian fluently,” Chris Bohjalian said. “He wanted to be as American as he could.”
