Posted on July 15, 2019 |
By Christopher Ross



BRISTOL — After weeks of interviewing and surveying community members this spring, then analyzing the 249 responses they got, the Mount Abraham Unified School District has released a summary of its findings.

The results are not so great.

Of the eight words used most frequently to describe interviewees’ feelings toward the district, only one was positive, and only moderately so: “hopeful.”

CORNWALL — Farmers and other landowners who are worried that an effort to reclassify the Otter Creek Wetland Complex as a Class I wetland would affect their current eligibility for federal conservation funds needn’t worry, according to representatives of the USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service.

Fresh Air Fund Atocha family CMYK.jpg

VERGENNES — A bus, travelling from New York City to Vermont, speeds past a herd of cows. A little child points out the window and says, “Do you know that’s where chocolate milk comes from?”

This is one of Marion Sullivan’s many treasured memories from her work for the Fresh Air Fund, a nonprofit providing summer experiences in the countryside for underprivileged children from New York City.

Cornwall poet reflects on 'time inside' a prison

CORNWALL — When’s the last time you wrote a poem? For some of us, it was a long time ago… like, before Facebook, OMG — back when journals served as outlets for inward, emotional tweens. For others, like Gary Margolis, poetry is a daily practice.

Every morning when this poet wakes up in his Cornwall home, he gets up and heads out for an hour’s walk down Sperry and Bordeau roads.

Middlebury water/sewer rates on the rise

Posted on July 11, 2019 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — The average municipal water and sewer user in Middlebury will pay a combined total of $700 for those services this fiscal year, a bump of more than 6.5 percent, or $43, compared to last year, according to figures supplied by the town.

At issue are fiscal year 2020 water and sewer rates recently endorsed by the Middlebury selectboard, rates that are likely to rise further in the coming years as the community takes stock in its aging infrastructure — specifically, water and sewer mains.

New hemp plants sprout up in emerging local market

Hemp child IMG_2406 CMYK.jpg

PITTSFORD — “Our secret’s out,” grinned Sam Markowski as he surveyed a dirt field full of different farm equipment. “We’re growing hemp up here in Pittsford.”

A close relative of the marijuana plant, hemp looks and smells just like it, but is absent the mind-altering chemicals found in its biological cousin. Hemp also has a wide variety of uses, most notably of late as the main ingredient in products made with CBD (shorthand for the chemical compound “cannabidiol”).

Jodi Covey settles in as parking 'ambassador'

Posted on July 11, 2019 |
By John Flowers



Covey parking IMG_3527.jpg

MIDDLEBURY — Monikers like “meter maid” and “parking cop” are thankfully exiting the law enforcement lexicon.

Jodi Covey has a more elegant and diplomatic term for describing her role of directing people to parking spaces and local services, while ticketing vehicles that overstay their welcome:

“Parking ambassador.”

Though she says “parking enforcement officer” will do just fine.
