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.

BRANDON — After 33 years, Otter Valley Union High School softball coach Pattie Candon has stepped down, a decision she announced last week.

In deciding to leave the post Candon cited the length of her tenure and the fact there are many good young players on a team that finished this past season strong after a slow start.

“I just feel this program is in a good place, and 33 years is a long time,” said Candon, who waited until after the season to tell her athletes about a decision she said she had made earlier.

Andy Kirkaldy: World Cup looks to be wide open; time for Spain

Kirkaldy, Andy ONLINE.jpg

This is a football column. No, not what we in the USA call football. Those who want to discuss whether the Giants should sign Odell Beckham Jr., whatever the heck Ben Roethlisberger was saying about his contract this weekend, or why the Patriots drafted a running back in the first round should look elsewhere, at least for today.

Because it’s time for the Copa Mundial de Futbol, the Coupe du Monde de Football, the World Cup of Football.

Vergennes council facing possible major tax hike

Posted on June 14, 2018 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — Facing a draft city budget that could theoretically trigger a 13-cent increase in the Vergennes municipal tax rate, the Vergennes City Council on Tuesday added an extra budget session for this Thursday to work on finding savings.

An increase of that full 13 cents is unlikely because it would assume the council uses none of an anticipated surplus from this fiscal year, which ends on June 30, to offset the tax rate.

VERGENNES — The owners of Kennedy Brothers complex in Vergennes struck a deal in May to lease for four years, with an option to buy, the former 14 North Main St. home of Denecker Chevrolet. The move will allow Kennedy Brothers’ biggest tenant, Shacksbury Cider, to continue to expand its operations in Vergennes.

Kennedy Brothers co-owner Bob Feuerstein said he expects the Vergennes Development Review Board to approve a conditional use permit for conversion of most of the former auto dealership into warehouse and storage space for the specialty cider firm.

By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — The Vergennes City Council at its Tuesday meeting came up with what it hopes will be at least a stop-gap measure to keep the city’s recycling center open — a proposal to enter into a six-month contract with the other four towns the center also serves.
