The Outside Story: A monarch lives among us

Posted on September 1, 2017 |
By Elise Tillinghast for The Outside Story



Outside Story Monarch.jpg

Earlier this summer, my daughter persuaded me to bring home a monarch egg. I had misgivings. This wasn’t my first butterfly rodeo, and previous experience was discouraging. Two summers past, a friend gave us several black swallowtail caterpillars. One lived to adulthood, but all the siblings wasted away, taking on the form of burnt bacon gristle.

On the plus side, this time we’d be starting with an egg, and a new one at that. We had found it minutes after watching the mother butterfly flutter down into a milkweed patch.

Young Ferrisburgh angler pulls in big fish

Fish kid Chase Stokes pike Resized9520170717951328321 cmyk.jpg

FERRISBURGH — Chase Stokes was no mere novice when he landed a state record carp this past spring. He had been fishing for almost a decade when he hauled in a 33.25-pound carp that measured 40 inches in length from Otter Creek in Panton this past April.

It took skill to land a fish that was nearly half as large as his own 76-pound body.

“I’ve been fishing since I was one-and-a-quarter,” the Ferrisburgh 11-year-old said in a recent interview.

Chase is a bit of a phenom when it comes to fishing, but he likes to hunt, as well.
