Several cliff areas are currently closed to protect nesting peregrine falcons.

Vergennes recycling center could be shut down

By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — The future of the Vergennes recycling and trash drop-off center is in doubt after city officials learned this past Tuesday that Casella Inc. in July would increase by 47 percent the cost of processing recycling brought to the center.

That increase, due to larger market forces, would boost the annual cost of the Canal Street center — an expense that is shared by the surrounding towns of Ferrisburgh, Panton, Waltham and Addison — by about $34,600 to roughly $107,600, according to City Manager Mel Hawley.

Hawley, Mel.jpg

VERGENNES — The first effort to find a replacement for soon-to-retire Vergennes City Manager Mel Hawley (pictured) was not productive, Deputy Mayor and search committee chairman Jeff Fritz told his fellow aldermen at last Tuesday’s city council meeting.

The committee’s efforts resulted in one candidate, according to Fritz, and the committee decided, he said, it would be “inappropriate to move forward just one candidate.”

By Joan Ellis



movie review Book Club.jpg

Book Club— Running Time: 1:44 — Rating: PG-13

Odds are about 50/50 as to whether the public will like or not like “Book Club.” Four strong, independent women have enjoyed becoming a book club together. When the selections become too boring for Vivian (Jane Fonda), she suggests they read “50 Shades of Grey,” which they do with a combination of reluctance and interest that moves them back into being interested in the dating world.
