Pet of the week: Kip

Posted on February 11, 2019 |
By Sandy and Bruce Archibald



POW Kips CMYK.jpg

My name is Kip. I am a Portuguese Pequeno Podengo, which you probably have never heard of, but I am the national dog of Portugal. We come in three sizes, me being the smallest of the three, and I’m the wirehaired version, so no matter how much my owner brushes me, one good shake and it springs right back out. I am a hound, which is evident as soon as I meet someone, because I insist on smelling every part of their body I can reach. By standing on my 2 legs, a known characteristic of my breed, I can annoy all arriving guests to my fullest capability.

Vermont Green Line faces new setback

Posted on January 7, 2019 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



FERRISBURGH/NEW HAVEN — The latest potential customer for the Vermont Green Line — a proposed high-voltage power transmission line intended to bring power from Hydro Quebec to southern New England via New York, the bottom of Lake Champlain and Vermont — has said no.

If the Vermont Green Line, or VGL, is built through northwestern Addison County, millions of dollars could flow into New Haven and Ferrisburgh in compensation for use of town road rights-of-way and in higher tax revenue through new taxable infrastructure.

NEW HAVEN — Sometimes the miracle of love’s persistence shines most brightly when it emerges from the anguish of a broken heart.

Linda Sweeney’s heart broke last February when her beloved husband, Michael, died unexpectedly. From grief’s dark and timeless depths she struggled to envision a world without him. Day by day, piece by piece — though she at times felt like an “unwilling architect” — she began to rebuild her life.
