Court overturns city permit denial, returns issue to DRB

Posted on April 19, 2010 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — A long-awaited Environmental Court decision on April 13 overturned a permit denial by the Vergennes Development Review Board, but did not grant permission to the owners of a vacant Grist Mill Island horse barn to renovate it into office space.

In September 2008, the DRB denied an application by Mahaiwe LLC to renovate the 2,100-square-foot barn. Mahaiwe is owned in part by Ferrisburgh’s David Shlansky, also owner of the Grist Mill Island in the Otter Creek falls and the nearby Shade Roller Mill.

By Andrea Suozzo



MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury College’s language programs, already prominent nationally and globally, will soon reach a new frontier: cyberspace.

After 14 months of planning and negotiation, the college last Wednesday announced its decision to team up with K12 Inc., a Virginia-based online education company, to develop virtual language courses for primary and secondary school students. The spin-off company, named Middlebury Interactive Languages (MIL), is set to release its first courses for high school students in the late summer of this year.

MIDDLEBURY — “This chair is leaning slightly to the left,” said state Sen. Peter Shumlin (D), waiting for a replacement on the stage of Middlebury College's Dana Auditorium last Sunday. “But so do I.”

His statement garnered a laugh from the audience gathered for a debate between the five democratic gubernatorial candidates for August’s primary elections. Though it was a sunny, warm afternoon, the candidates spoke to a full auditorium — more than 200 townspeople, college students and local politicians filled the space.

By Kathryn Flagg



ADDISON COUNTY — Changes are afoot for Vermont’s so-called “Current Use” program in an effort to trim $1.6 million from the popular tax abatement program.

A committee bill that would charge every landowner in the program a $128 fee passed the Senate finance committee last week, and was on notice for a second reading early this week. As the Addison Independent went to press on Wednesday, the schedule tentatively called for the bill to be discussed on the Senate floor on Wednesday or Thursday.

MIDDLEBURY — A good theatrical performance, local playwright Dana Yeaton believes, should massage audience members.

“If the touch is too light, when they go home, they don’t feel any different, and it’s not that nice,” Yeaton said. “The good massage is the one that gets into those spots and it takes you right to your threshold… The fun of it is being effective.”

Goodrich expanding workforce

Posted on April 15, 2010 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — The current workforce at Goodrich Corp.’s Vergennes plant stands at 780, about 20 fewer than a year ago. But if the company’s local hiring plans work out, more workers will soon punch in and out on Panton Road than did in mid-2009, and the workforce could return to where it stood before layoffs began early last year.

Sol Mirelez, marketing communications manager of Goodrich’s Sensors and Integrated Systems division — which includes the Vergennes plant — said the company is now advertising for more help there.

Farmers team up for collaborative CSA

Posted on April 15, 2010 |
By Kathryn Flagg



web_CSAjeremyandcaitlyn.jpg

ADDISON COUNTY — On a brisk mid-April morning, Jeremy Gildrien worked alone in the large greenhouse beside his Middlebury home, fashioning from a mound of earth the “soil blocks” that would someday soon nurture small, green seedlings.

The breeze cut through the greenhouse as Gildrien worked among the rows of spinach and radishes and pea shoots, each sending up sprouts. He and his wife, Caitlin, are beginning farmers, and they’re learning that much of the work on their vegetable farm is solitary.
