EAST MIDDLEBURY — As the New Year begins, many people will be turning up the heat in their homes and enjoying the outdoors through the nearest window.

But this winter, Kendra Dempewolff of East Middlebury will spend her days living outdoors — skiing and canoeing the wilderness of New Hampshire and Vermont, sleeping in a handmade cotton tent and making many of the things she needs to survive. She, along with 10 others, is gearing up for Jan. 6, the beginning of a five-month-long program with New Hampshire-based Kroka Expeditions.

By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — The Fashion Bug women’s clothing store, a fixture in The Centre shopping plaza on Route 7 South for more than two decades, will close its doors by Jan. 31.

ADDISON — Transportation officials have yet to set a specific date for the demolition of the Champlain Bridge, but its impending destruction is looming as perhaps the most keenly anticipated event in Addison since the day 80 years ago when a veritable who’s who of New York and Vermont politicians, businessmen and area residents marked the grand opening of the span on Aug. 26, 1929.

BRISTOL — Bristol voters by a margin of 133 to 75 voted on Tuesday to approve a bond of up to $750,000 to repair Holley Hall.

The 208 voters who turned out for the special vote represented a little less than 8 percent of the town’s voter checklist. While selectboard Chair Carol Wells said the turnout was disappointing, she was pleased with the outcome of the vote.

“Obviously, I’m excited that it passed,” Wells said. “Now we can move on to the next phase of finalizing the plan and trying to get the best bid possible and start securing other funds to reduce the bond.”

OV eyes more than $350k in budget cuts

BRANDON — The Otter Valley Union High School Board is seeking feedback from Rutland Northeast Supervisory Union-area residents at a budget forum at its Dec. 16 meeting at 7 p.m. in the OV auditorium.

At the OV board’s Dec. 2 budget-building session, board members and administration first learned the full magnitude of the budget impacts they are facing. Since October, they had been working on a plan to cut $350,000 from the current spending plan in an attempt to create a 2010-2011 budget that results in no increase in property tax rates for district towns.

By Kathryn Flagg



MIDDLEBURY — Again and again on Tuesday, participants at an Addison County “farm to plate” summit pointed to the biggest roadblock impinging the expansion of a local foods movement in Vermont: the infrastructure for aggregating, processing and distributing locally grown food is all but nonexistent.

H1N1 cases beginning to dwindle

Posted on December 10, 2009 |
By Kathryn Flagg



ADDISON COUNTY — The hospital and doctors’ offices in Addison County are enjoying the calm after the storm, after the number of cases of the H1N1 “swine” flu has reportedly tapered off over the last two weeks.

Vermont Health Commissioner Wendy Davis last week said the swine flu outbreak appeared to be waning in the state, though she warned that the illness could return in another wave and urged “high risk” patients to get vaccinated.

Still, the flu virus is keeping county healthcare providers — especially family practices and pediatricians’ offices — plenty busy.

MIDDLEBURY — Regular shoppers at Greg’s Meat Market will notice some new faces walking through the aisles — along with the absence of a familiar one.

Greg Wry on Tuesday formally sold the store to Bart Litvin and Lisa Hartman (see related story). The sale represents the end of an era and the beginning of a new one, though the new owners stressed they won’t tamper at all with the winning formula Wry has employed at the store for the past 28 years.

Middlebury selectmen consider budget cuts

Posted on December 10, 2009 |
By Kathryn Flagg



MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury selectmen on Tuesday said they will explore more cuts, freezing staff vacancies and using a fund balance in order to trim another $106,905 from a draft fiscal year 2011 spending that would allow Middlebury to maintain the same municipal property tax rate next year.

It would be the second year in a row that Middlebury residents would be offered a budget to maintain the same municipal tax rate, which currently stands at 80.91 cents. The chore is being rendered a little more difficult this year, for two main reasons.
