Diving deep: Tenth shipwreck added to recreational dives in Lake Champlain

Posted on August 3, 2017 |
By Emma Cotton



n Diving deep MAKE HZ shot.jpg

In Lake Champlain, 100 feet down in the dark and chilly waters of Shelburne Bay, the U.S. La Vallee tugboat sits upright and in nearly perfect condition. Aside from the windows, blown out from air pressure upon the boat’s sinking 80-plus years ago, it is completely intact, with its original paint and a readable steel plaque that lists details about its unique steam-powered engine.

Chris Sabick, archaeological director at Lake Champlain Maritime Museum in Ferrisburgh, dove on the shipwreck after it was found in 1996.

Raise your hand if you’ve ever taken your plastic laundry basket out to harvest your garden. No? How about a trash bag? Go ahead, no one’s looking... We’ve all been there. Sometimes it’s necessary; all that kale just plain doesn’t fit in the cute normal-sized garden basket.

Kristine “Kris” Myrick Andrews knows what you’re going through. She’s actually been there; which is why, 35 years ago, she decided to learn how to make her own baskets.

Malt maker, Ferrisburgh strike deal for prime land

Posted on August 3, 2017 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



FERRISBURGH — The Ferrisburgh selectboard on Tuesday agreed on a $337,500 deal to sell the town-owned 34.91-acre parcel at the junction of Routes 7 and 22A to Andrew Peterson of Monkton, owner of Peterson Quality Malt.

Peterson plans to build a 10,000-square-foot, barn-like malt-processing house and to grow barley on the land. He said he is optimistic the deal can eventually close despite the hurdles that remain, such as permitting and financing contingencies that are due to be met in January and November, respectively.

'Hamlet' still hits home in 2017: Shakespeare on Main Street brings iconic show to Brandon

Posted on August 3, 2017 |
By Will DiGravio



n Hamlet9671.jpg

BRANDON — The opening of Shakespeare’s “Hamlet” is one of the most famous scenes in all of literature.

Two Danish watchmen, Bernardo and Marcellus, bring Horatio, a friend of Prince Hamlet, to their post to show him what they have seen the past two nights: the ghost of the deceased King Hamlet.

As the trio sit in darkness, the ghost suddenly appears. They stare at the spirit in disbelief until the dawn approaches and the king vanishes. Horatio then runs to tell young Hamlet what he has seen, and thus the play begins.

Posted on August 3, 2017 |
By CYRUS READY-CAMPBELL of VTDigger.org



Vermont’s maple syrup output this year nearly matched last year’s record, according to the USDA, driven largely by a continuing increase in the number of taps.

The state produced 1.98 million gallons in the most recent season, slightly behind the record last year of 1.99 million, says a USDA report.

Henry Marckres, the Agency of Agriculture’s maple specialist for the past 33 years, said the recent highs in maple production are consistent with a longer trend.
