BRISTOL — Bristol-area voters on March 6 will field their first-ever unified budget covering all Addison Northeast schools.

The proposed 2018-2019 spending plan now under consideration calls for elimination of 20 full-time-equivalent staff positions — including six full-time teachers — in order to achieve the $1,177,814 in reductions needed to meet the Mount Abraham Unified School District (MAUSD) board’s austerity guidelines.

Posted on December 14, 2017 |
By John S. McCright



MONKTON — A couple in Monkton were rousted out of their beds in the middle of the night this past Saturday by a fire that claimed their home but not their lives.

“What saved them was the smoke alarms; that’s what woke them up — that and the CO detectors,” Monkton Fire Chief David Layn said of the fire at the home of Rob Durand and Lisa Gorham at 151 Cat Tail Lane.

By Gaen Murphree



MONKTON — Some citizens at Monday’s Addison Northeast Supervisory Union information session on a proposed $35 million school building bond were all for it. But a question about the cost to taxpayers proved to be a sticking point for some at the meeting.
