Posted on November 9, 2017 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — Those seeking to obtain insurance through Vermont Health Connect (VHC) or who want to modify the plan in which they are currently enrolled have to act fast.

That’s because state and federal officials have cut this year’s VHC “open enrollment period” in half, from 12 weeks to a six-week period that began on Nov. 1 and will end on Dec. 15.

At stake is health care coverage for 2018 — Vermonters who miss the Dec. 15 deadline might have to wait until 2019 to get their coverage, according to state officials.

New leadership is beginning to change the identity of the horse farm from what has primarily been a training and breeding facility for Morgans, to more of an educational asset and tourist magnet.

ANESU voters reject $36 million Mount Abe building bond

Posted on November 6, 2017 |
By John Flowers



BRISTOL — Addison Northeast Supervisory Union residents on Thursday rejected a $36.6 million renovation plan for Mount Abraham Union High School by a 1,261 to 1,168 tally.

The close, 93-vote margin of defeat has provided project proponents with a silver lining sense that a third vote could be the charm for getting five-town residents to endorse major repairs to their almost 50-year-old secondary school building.
