By Andy Kirkaldy



PANTON — Seven months after residents at a contentious Panton Town Meeting backed spending money to repair and upgrade Panton Town Hall, much new work has been done, including a new handicap access ramp to the main meeting space and new accessible bathrooms to serve that space.  

But two projects residents also backed, a public kitchen in that space and a replacement for the wooden cupola removed seven years ago, remain in limbo.

Facing up to aging as an athlete — but not giving up

By Andy Kirkaldy



Andy Aging Athlete Andy Kirkaldy and Peter Quinn CMYK.jpg

Our elliptical machine talks to me all the time.

It just doesn’t sit in the corner of the family room while I do my best to ignore it.

“I’m here,” the elliptical tells me. “I’m waiting. It’s only a matter of time. You’ll see. It will be you and me and tai chi.”

I try not to listen. I turn up the TV and dream about being 24 years old, when as a left back no wing could beat me down the right side of the soccer pitch.

The result was a 2-1 win over visiting Windsor that avenged a 4-3 loss to the Jacks on Sept. 14 and boosted the Otters to .500 at 6-6.

VERGENNES — On Tuesday morning a rapt audience of all Vergennes Union High School students and staff members listened to a man who was once one of the world’s best snowboarders talk about how his life changed “in the blink of an eye” about 10 years ago. He spoke about how he has dealt with that change and is trying to help others face similar adversity.

Speaking in a packed VUHS auditorium was Kevin Pearce, a Vermonter who was once a medal favorite for the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics and is the co-founder of the Love Your Brain Foundation.

Ferrisburgh site eyed for trash center

Posted on October 11, 2018 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — The Addison County Solid Waste Management District board of supervisors has voted to negotiate with Ferrisburgh about possibly purchasing or leasing the town’s 34.91-acre parcel outside of Vergennes for a regional recycling and trash collection site.

With the Vergennes recycling center probably closing on Dec. 31, Addison County Solid Waste Management District (ACSWMD) Manager Teri Kuczynski said the district board believes the best long-term answer to Vergennes-area trash and recycling handling is a regional drop-off center.

MIDDLEBURY — Tuesday’s boys’ soccer game between visiting Vergennes Union High School and host Middlebury was a rematch of a Sept. 25 game that proved to be pivotal for both the Commodores and Tigers.

On that day the host Commodores hung a 1-0 upset on a Tiger team that probably took them a little too lightly. Since then, VUHS had reeled off four straight wins to improve to 6-4 heading into Tuesday and put itself in line for a Division III playoff home game.
