BRISTOL — By August 2006, exchanging fire with insurgents was so routine that the U.S. Marines in Lance Cpl. Jon Turner’s platoon in Ramadi, Iraq, expected it like clockwork.

So when Turner, just after he rose one morning and began preparing to go out on post, heard the distinctive thoomp of a 120-millimeter mortar fired from outside the compound, he wasn’t surprised.

Posted on November 6, 2014 |
By John Flowers

MIDDLEBURY — Naomi Smith had spent several years as a Certified Public Accountant when, during the late 1990s, she felt a tug to a decidedly different profession. Instead of counting numbers, she wanted to become a person who other women could count on if they had become victims of domestic or sexual abuse.

So Smith took a job as shelter program director for Burlington’s Women Helping Battered Women organization.

Shumlin tops Milne in Addison County — barely

By John S. McCright



ADDISON COUNTY — In Tuesday’s polling Gov. Peter Shumlin didn’t do any better vs. GOP challenger Scott Milne in Addison County than he did elsewhere in the state as he made a bid for a third term in Vermont’s top constitutional office.

With only the results for Lincoln still unreported at 1:20 a.m. Wednesday, Shumlin appeared to be on track to win the popular vote in Addison County and in the state — but just barely.  We had him leading Milne, 5,675-5,524.

Page 4 snafu in Monday's paper, Nov. 3

Posted on November 3, 2014 |
By Addison Independent Staff



How closely do you read the paper? 
If you fancy yourself a careful reader, you may have noticed that Page 4 in today's print edition did not look like most Page 4s. There were no editorials, no letters or guest columns, and no big, black and white Trent Campbell photo.

Don't panic. It was just a mistake.

The wrong page was pulled in by our printer at the St Albans Messenger, which resulted in them re-printing Page 4 from the recent United Way supplement that you may have seen in the paper late last month rather than the correct page.
