BRISTOL — It’s been almost five months since two men with baseball bats barged into Bristol’s Living Well assisted care home, stealing roughly 270 doses of narcotics. But the incident still haunts 20-year-old Stepfanie Williams, who was on staff as a caregiver that September night.

Earlier this month, Williams met with Living Well staff, Bristol police and other concerned parties in Bristol’s Holley Hall to discuss the incident and to explore what authorities call a growing drug problem in Addison County.

MIDDLEBURY — Imagine driving from Middlebury to Jacksonville, Fla. Now, replace your car engine with a paddle and muscle power, and imagine canoeing the same distance — about 1,200 miles.

This spring, 10 young men will leave Lake Dunmore in a fleet of wood-canvas canoes they built themselves, bound 1,200 miles north for James Bay, Canada. Instead of finishing in the sunbelt, though, they’ll chase spring ice on their paddle through Quebec and Ontario.

By Andrea Suozzo



 

LEICESTER/WHITING/GOSHEN — The past two years have seen reduced budgets for schools around the state, but the 2012-2013 fiscal year spending at Rutland Northeast Supervisory Union elementary schools looks to be on the rise once again.

“Over the last few years we’ve done so much cutting that there’s not much left to cut,” said Matt Brush, chair of the Leicester Central School board, which warned a budget with a spending increase of 4.6 percent over the current year.

Milfoil problem still growing in Dunmore

Posted on February 27, 2012 |
By Christian Woodard



LEICESTER/SALISBURY — When the last ice melts off, the annual battle for Lake Dunmore will begin again. On one side: an army of volunteers, paid divers and milfoil specialists. On the other: an underwater invasive plant called Eurasian watermilfoil.

The population of milfoil in Lake Dunmore and Fern Lake has grown tenfold since 2009, and is expected to double again this season, according to Jay Michaels, a trustee of the Lake Dunmore and Fern Lake Association (LDFLA)

Aldermen eye police station sites

By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — City leaders are inching closer to identifying a site for a new Vergennes police station. At their Feb. 21 meeting, aldermen sliced five of 13 potential sites from a working list they had been eyeing.

City Manager Mel Hawley said on Thursday the five sites that did not make the cut met the original criteria set by the council — they fronted on a Class 1 or 2 road, offered at least 1 usable acre, and were not in a residential area — but were the lowest ranked by aldermen on the single basis of location.

City council adopts conflict policy

Posted on February 27, 2012 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — After making a couple of tweaks they discussed in January, Vergennes aldermen on Feb. 21 adopted their first official conflict of interest policy, one that largely follows a Vermont League of Cities and Towns template.

In their discussions in recent meetings, aldermen said they have never known an instance where a member of the council has acted in a manner that would violate such a policy.

But they have also agreed it would clarify for members of the public what guidelines they follow and make public what rules future councils will follow.
