Here’s the biggest change: Beginning next spring, the state will end home delivery of WIC food packages and will instead issue an electronic benefits card to clients.

HANCOCK — In 2011 Tropical Storm Irene steamrolled through the town of Hancock, delivering a series of potent haymakers to many of its roads, culverts and, to a certain extent, community morale.

Four years later, the eastern Addison County town of 323 residents is on a firm road to recovery, a renaissance that has produced an improved and expanded town green, an imminent relocation of the municipal offices to a reclaimed former schoolhouse, and ongoing renovations to the historic Hancock General Store building near the intersection of Routes 125 and 100.

Gardening on the wild side

Posted on September 14, 2015 |
By Judith Irven



Garden col by Judith Irven 9 10 15.jpg

I love our pond bed. Filled with robust perennials and grasses, many of prairie origin, it is more reminiscent of a meadow than a garden bed.
