VERGENNES — The table appears set for 3 Squares Café owner-operator Matt Birong of Vergennes to join the Vermont Legislature.

Barring a write-in campaign or a minor party candidate entering the race later this summer, Birong and incumbent Rep. Diane Lanpher, D-Vergennes, will run unopposed on Nov. 6 for Addison-3’s two Vermont House seats representing Addison, Ferrisburgh, Panton, Vergennes and Waltham.

It would be the first time ever that two Democrats held both seats in what has traditionally been a Republican stronghold.

VERGENNES — The members of the Vergennes Union High School Class of 2018 this past Friday, June 15, took their final group bow and walked out into their futures.

They did so after being showered in a steamy gymnasium by confetti cannons; advice from several sources, including their peers; and, according to graduation speaker Chris Sheehan, the love of not only their families and friends, but also their teachers.

Farmers do their part to reduce food waste

Posted on June 21, 2018 |
By Rachel Cohen



ElmerFarm6819.jpg

ADDISON COUNTY — 2014 was a great year for cabbage in Vermont. Spencer Blackwell’s cabbages on Elmer Farm in Middlebury grew to be around 12 pounds each.

It was amazing to see, but he knew he wouldn’t be able to sell the especially heavy heads of greens to any of his usual markets. He ended up “turning under” two-thirds of the cabbages, not harvesting them so that the nutrients from the germinated crops could be recycled into the soil.

Technology no obstacle to language education

NEW StevenSnyder2315.jpg

MIDDLEBURY — Lillian Stroebe, who founded the Middlebury College Language Schools in 1914, said Middlebury was an ideal location for an immersive language program because of the degree of isolation it offered.

“Middlebury was actually chosen because at the time, it was in the middle of nowhere and students would come here and there wouldn’t be a lot of distractions and you could create the kind of isolation that would allow them to do that full immersion,” said Stephen Snyder, current dean of the Language Schools.

Posted on June 21, 2018 |
By Nick Garber



ADDISON COUNTY — The United States Department of Agriculture’s final tally of maple sugar production is in and Vermont is, once again, the nation’s top producer.
