Posted on June 17, 2016 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury Energy Committee Chairman Jason Kaye last week served notice to the Middlebury selectboard that he will participate in peaceful efforts to disrupt construction of the Addison Natural Gas Project pipeline into town, and asked board members if such activity might preclude him from serving on the panel.

At their June 14 meeting, selectboard members replied they will continue to endorse Kaye’s stewardship of the committee, provided his pipeline protests stay nonviolent and within the spirit of civil disobedience.

MIDDLEBURY — Mike Quinn was driving a taxi in New York City 45 years ago, not sure where life was going to take him.

Well, it’s been a long, enjoyable trip, and Quinn, 68, is now ready to drive into the next chapter of his life after a 44-year teaching career that included 37 years as a physical education instructor at Middlebury’s Mary Hogan Elementary School.

“When I started teaching, Richard Nixon was president, nobody knew of Watergate, and many of my colleagues weren’t even born at that time,” Quinn said.

Posted on June 16, 2016 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — The Vergennes City Council this week will be studying a $1.848 million draft general fund budget for fiscal year 2016-2017 that, if approved as is, could raise the city’s municipal tax rate from 75 to 84 cents.

A 9-cent hike in the municipal tax rate would translate to an additional $180 of annual taxes for a $200,000 home.  

That spending does not include the user-supported sewer budget, and City Manager Mel Hawley on Tuesday also recommended a $34 annual increase in the per-unit sewer rate.

StarksboroGarage7412.jpg

STARKSBORO — On May 19 at 5 a.m., the three-man Starksboro road crew raised their morning cups of coffee and celebrated a brand new day. On that Thursday, Road Foreman Tom Estey and crewmembers Paul Porter and Tony Porter began work out of the new town garage, completed on time and on budget.

“I still pinch myself every once in a while and go, ‘Yeah, it’s real,’” said Estey.

The 7,800-square-foot garage just north of the town’s Route 116 fire station is worth a gander (see open house information below).
