MONKTON — The family of a Monkton teen severely injured in a car accident last week is grateful for the outpouring of community support they have received.

Julia Rickner, 18, was one of three University of Vermont students in a car that veered off of Interstate 89 in Colchester on April 4. The driver, 19-year-old Jacob Dahreddin of Bethesda, Md., was critically injured and the other passenger, 18-year-old Christina Menke of Essex, was killed.

Monkton Central board warns school budget revote

Posted on April 6, 2015 |
By Zach Despart



MONKTON — The Monkton Central School board on Thursday evening warned for voter consideration a new spending proposal that shifts resources within the school without increasing the size of the budget.

The sum of the proposal, around $2.82 million, is $200 less than the version voters rejected on Town Meeting Day by a tally of 231 to 178.

If passed, the budget would represent a 9.3 percent spending increase over the present fiscal year. The new vote will be Tuesday, April 14.

Monkton opts to move town meeting; keeps voice votes

Posted on March 5, 2015 |
By Zach Despart



MONKTON — Monkton residents took a stand for what they called the town’s democratic traditions in two ways: one, by moving the date of their town meeting in hopes of drawing more people; and two, by voting down two articles that would have changed the method of deciding several articles from voice vote to Australian ballot.

A proposed article on this year’s warning would have moved the date and time of the annual meeting from 10 a.m. on Town Meeting Day, to 7 p.m. the evening before.

MONKTON — Firefighters from two counties battled a Monday afternoon blaze that displaced five people at 842 Rotax Road in Monkton.

Monkton Fire Department Assistant Chief Curtis Layn said the call came in around 3 p.m., and by the time firefighters arrived minutes later, flames had engulfed a garage and also ignited a double-wide trailer six feet from the garage.

Layn said the homeowner had been working on his dune buggy in the garage, but something went wrong when he turned the ignition, sparking the blaze.

MONKTON — Most Vermonters would be perplexed to see Culver City, Calif., appear on their caller ID. But when that happened to Monkton Central School teacher Kate La Riviere-Gagner this past fall, she had a hunch who might be on the line.

“I was in my classroom standing by the window and my heart jumped,” La Riviere-Gagner said.

As she suspected, it was a producer from “Jeopardy!” informing her to book a flight to Los Angeles, because she’d been selected as a contestant on the popular TV game show.
