No Refunds George & Jonny smiling cmyk.jpg

MONKTON — Anybody concerned about the “future of boys” should take a look at “No Refunds,” a vigorously playful and wonderfully messy YouTube channel created by three freshmen at Mount Abraham Union High School.

Inspired by Saturday Night Live and their favorite sports commentators, Monkton residents Jonny Armell, George Collette and (when he can make it) Tristan Parker head down to George’s mom’s basement every Tuesday afternoon, sit at a plastic conference table, hit record and let it fly.

Walden story by Marin H 6070.jpg

VERGENNES/MONKTON — On a cold November day in the woods of Monkton, students from Vermont and New York sat gathered around the fire, deeply engaged in conversation.

Each of these students was a member of an alternative-learning program from either the Green Mountain State or the Empire State.

MONKTON — The facts are pretty straightforward: Neither the Monkton town office nor the town’s Russell Memorial Library has a source of potable water. Both buildings are energy hogs. The parking situation stinks.

MONKTON — After a brief search, the Monkton selectboard appointed longtime resident Marikate Kelley to fill an open seat vacated by Rodger Parker, who resigned from the board last month.

Two official meetings in, she added with a grin, “I haven’t changed my mind about that.”
