Neighborhood push-back prompts solar project move in Brandon

Posted on May 21, 2018 |
By Lee J. Kahrs



BRANDON — Public backlash from residents over a proposed 25-acre solar array just outside downtown Brandon has led the developer to seek an alternative site — possibly in town, perhaps elsewhere.

RIPTON — School. You get out of it what you put in, as they say. And at Ripton’s North Branch School, student effort isn’t just measured by the amount of time spent in the classroom or in front of a computer screen.

For graduating 9th-graders, it’s also measured in miles — 23 of them, all associated with an annual three-day backpacking trek along the Long Trail.

By Christopher Ross



BRISTOL — Natural gas service is coming to Bristol.

After months of intense discussion, the town selectboard on Monday night voted, 3-1, to pledge their signatures on a proposed license agreement with Vermont Gas Systems (VGS) as soon as the remaining contract kinks get worked out.

By Christy Lynn



HOME New Fireplace IMG_0718.jpg

MIDDLEBURY — Last summer, my husband Sam and I finally decided to jump in with both feet on the house we had been renting. We bought the house and began a process that could be compared to giving an 85-year-old a facelift.
