VERGENNES — Gov. James Douglas set the tone for the evening at last Wednesday night’s Addison County Firefighters Association annual dinner meeting.

He asked the scores of white- and blue-shirted men and women present at the Addison Eagles Club to think for a moment about longtime Vergennes Fire Chief Ralph Jackman, a lifetime member of the ACFA who died Jan. 2 after 62 years of service to his department.

“Ralph’s gone, but we’ll always remember his service to the community,” said Douglas.

By Andy Kirkaldy



ADDISON — The Addison Central School board on Thursday eliminated the jobs of the school’s music teacher and librarian, among other cuts, to cut spending and avoid paying a higher per-pupil tax penalty in the 2010-2011 school year.

The result is a total proposed decrease in spending of $84,700, or about 6 percent, to roughly $1.8 million. Addison voters will decide the fate of that proposed ACS budget on Town Meeting Day.

New bill takes aim at mold insurance rules

Posted on January 25, 2010 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — A former Bristol resident is urging the state Legislature to pass a new law that would require property and casualty insurers to provide coverage for mold-related damage in homes.

At issue is bill S.229, introduced this year on behalf of Brenda Shores, who rented a basement apartment on Mountain Street in Bristol from 2006-2007. During her tenancy, she said mold took over the apartment, creeping into the walls and eventually into her clothing and furniture.

MIDDLEBURY — Ilsley Library’s newest star is a scene-stealer: At 120 pounds with sleek black hair and soulful brown eyes, the reading assistant draws a crowd the moment she steps into a room.

That this budding literacy advocate just happens to be a dog doesn’t particularly worry Judah Hamer, the youth services librarian at the Middlebury library. Shoopie the Newfoundland, a therapy dog now making weekly appearances at the library to read with children, is just the thing to make reading out loud exciting for some kids, Hamer explained.
