Posted on May 10, 2012 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — Aldermen moved closer on Tuesday to creating a final policy that will establish a three-member committee to handle, on a year-round basis, applications for displays on the city green — including the popular, decades-old Christian nativity scene.

The committee that is called for in that policy — a final draft of which remains to be written and approved — will consist of City Clerk Joan Devine and one member each of the city’s planning commission and recreation committee.

Ferlandlt-MUHS-filmmaker.jpg

MIDDLEBURY — Picture this: 12- and 13-year-old boys heading into the Catskill Mountains to tend a fire alone for 24 hours.

It might sound like a rite of passage from an earlier age, a challenge set for boys who might one day live on the animals they trapped or the edible plants they gathered.

This scene, though, takes place in August of 2009 and forms the central narrative of Peter Ferland’s documentary “Tending Fires,” which he will screen at Bridge School in Middlebury this Saturday at 7 p.m.

ANwSU eyes bond to fund projects at high school

Posted on May 10, 2012 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — Voters in the five Addison Northwest Supervisory Union towns will almost certainly be asked in either November or March to support a $2 million Vergennes Union High School bond that could also, in theory, approach $5 million.

The $2 million, said ANwSU Superintendent Tom O’Brien and business manager Kathy Cannon earlier this week, would pay for a long list of what they called long-term building needs and “health and safety” items.

NEW HAVEN — Ed McGuire spent 18 years teaching math to Mount Abraham Union High School students before retiring in 2008.

Now McGuire, a New Haven Democrat, will be reaching out to many of those same, now-adult students to earn their votes as he embarks on a race for the Addison-5 House seat that represents the towns of Bridport, Weybridge and New Haven.

“I do know a lot of young people,” McGuire said on Monday, the official kick-off of his first foray into politics.

A low-income lunch bill slips away

Posted on May 10, 2012 |
By Andrew Stein



VERMONT — A proposed law aimed at reducing the financial burden of school meals for children in low-income families has been in the Vermont Legislature for two years now. But with huge financial setbacks following Tropical Storm Irene, legislators say it won’t come to a vote this year.

In 2008, legislators passed a bill to provide free breakfasts to all students eligible for the state’s free and reduced-price meal program. Before this bill became law, reduce-priced meal students paid 30 cents per breakfast.

Posted on May 7, 2012 |
By John Flowers



artcohn4276.jpg

VERGENNES — It’s known as the “Little City.” But Vergennes, unbeknownst to many, played a huge role two centuries ago in a major U.S. Navy victory that protected the Champlain Valley from British invasion and helped end the War of 1812.

The story is succinctly acknowledged on a plaque adorning a stately, stone-pillared monument standing in the city park.
