Mount Abe district rolls out its strategic plan

Posted on May 16, 2019 |
By Christopher Ross



BRISTOL — The new logo adopted by the Mount Abraham Unified School District contains a subtle but significant inversion of the graphics. The blue M, yellow A and pink D are set against a white background, but the U and the S are themselves white, set against a green background.

The effect makes prominent the word “Us.”

Look for it. You’re about to see it everywhere.

WEST ADDISON — Vergennes Union High School senior and Patricia A. Hannaford Career Center Automotive Technology student Holden Clark came by his passion for working on vehicles naturally.

Solar array pitched for Route 116 in Bristol

Posted on May 16, 2019 |
By Christopher Ross



BRISTOL — Bristol may get a new solar array next year.

Green Lantern Solar (GLS) is pitching a 150 kW array for a spot near Route 116, just south of Notch Road.

If built, it would not be visible from the highway, GLS officials say.

By Vermont’s net-metering standards, which allow for arrays up to 500 kW, this would be a relatively modest project, occupying less than an acre of land, said GLS Director of Development Ralph Meima.
