Residents voted 110-39 to keep the k-6 Sudbury Country School open on Monday night following a two-hour information meeting held by the Sudbury school board. The vote was scheduled after a petition was presented to the board on Oct. 11 asking voters to consider shuttering the school due to falling enrollment and tuitioning students to other area schools.

BRISTOL — Though the Bristol Christmas pageant will include the traditional Mary, Joseph and baby Jesus, complete with manger and barnyard animals, this year’s pageant takes on a rather untraditional format.

Seventeen-year-old Thomas Ahern, who has been taking a film class at the Patricia A. Hannaford Career Center, volunteered to film and edit a video version of the Christmas story that will premiere at the First Baptist Church of Bristol on Sunday, Dec. 12, on 4:30 p.m.

Architect recalls Vt. vernacular

Posted on December 9, 2010 |
By Tamara Hilmes



MIDDLEBURY — Architect Turner Brooks grew up visiting the Ferrisburgh home of family friend Clement Hurd, illustrator of the beloved children’s book “Goodnight Moon.” Brooks still references the whimsical illustrations today when describing his own design work.

“There’s an incredible, strong juxtaposition of the intimate and the infinite,” he said during his recent lecture at Middlebury College, pointing during a slide showing to one of Hurd’s drawings of the bunny’s cozy bedroom with the lone window displaying the infinite night sky.

ADDISON COUNTY — No, local experts said, the county’s real estate market is not booming, an opinion that probably will surprise nobody.

At the same time, appraisers said the news is not all bad, especially for owners of homes in more affordable price ranges.

The latest data from the Northern New England Real Estate Network, according to Vergennes appraiser Bill Benton, show a median sales price in Addison County of $205,000, down just 2.4 percent from 2009 despite lingering economic woes.

OVUHS board considers trimming teaching positions

Posted on December 6, 2010 |
By Lee J. Kahrs



BRANDON — The Otter Valley Union High School Board’s biggest challenge is not coming from state officials this budget season, but from students. Or lack thereof.
A continuing decline in the student population has left the board with a much greater budgetary test than meeting state’s Challenges for Change target of cutting spending by 2 percent.
The cuts may result in the termination of the School Resource Officer (SRO) position currently held by Brandon Police Officer Anne Bandy, one science teacher and two English teachers.
