By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — After discussion at Tuesday’s Vergennes City Council meeting, council members decided the fate of about 1,000 feet of South Water Street sidewalk rests in the hands of new City Manager Matt Chabot.

BRISTOL — Mary Arbuckle found her voice on the side of a Bristol mountain.

In the 1970s, after graduating from Boston University with a degree in philosophy and religion, she moved north to build a cabin in the woods. It wasn’t philosophizing from the dooryard of her new mountain home that changed her life, however — it was a simple gift.

“Someone gave me a camera for my birthday,” Arbuckle said. “When I started exploring with it, it was like a light bulb went off for me.”

CORNWALL — Amy Oxford thought rug hooking was a dying art. She has been making punch-needle-style rugs since 1982, and teaching the craft almost as long. In the mid-’80s, there was only one shop in the country that specialized in punch-needle supplies. So she opened her own shop and mail-order business — from her Cornwall home — to meet her students’ needs.
