Orwell to field school unification vote for a third time

Posted on November 23, 2016 |
By John Flowers



ORWELL — Orwell residents next March will be asked for a third time to merge their school governance with that of five nearby Rutland County towns to form a new Slate Valley Unified Union School District.

Voters in Orwell have already rejected such a move twice this year.

Orwell farm loses half its turkeys to fowl cholera outbreak

By Gaen Murphree



ORWELL — Hail, flood, drought, plagues of locusts — since ancient times farming has been one of the riskiest of human endeavors. And it still is. Just ask Orwell turkey farmer Peter Stone, who’s facing devastating losses just as the calendar nears Turkey Day.

An outbreak of what’s known as fowl cholera, possibly introduced into one of the eight barns at Stone’s Stonewood Farm by a determined fox or bobcat, has claimed 15,000 turkeys — nearly half of Stonewood’s 2016 flock of 32,000 birds.
