Farmers to Shumlin: Lay off Current Use

Posted on January 15, 2015 |

ADDISON COUNTY — Gov. Peter Shumlin has made cleaning up Lake Champlain a top priority. To do that, he proposed in his Jan. 8 inaugural address to make changes to the state’s Current Use tax program to penalize farmers who pollute waterways.

The Agency of Agriculture said denying Current Use tax breaks to offenders would add another enforcement tool to the state, which is cracking down on pollution into its waterways.

Posted on January 15, 2015 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — The Vergennes Union High School board on Monday adopted a roughly $10.47 million spending plan that administrators said will begin to dig VUHS out of its deep financial hole and would more accurately reflect the cost of operating the school after years of underfunded spending.

To reach those goals, the budget calls for an 11 percent increase of about $1 million over the VUHS budget Addison Northwest Supervisory Union voters approved this past spring.

The 215-year-old institution unveiled a new “brand identity” that plays up the iconic marble and limestone buildings while better integrating its increasingly diverse programs under the Middlebury name.

“Middlebury has, over the last 100 years, built itself into a more complex institution that meets the educational needs of many types of students around the world,” the school said in a statement.

Jessie Raymond: January 1 is a bad time for resolutions

By Jessie Raymond



New Year’s resolutions. Are they still a thing?

I don’t mean are they still an annual cultural ritual. I mean are they still a thing by Jan. 15? I think I missed the open enrollment period.

Not that I really care. Sure, I might have felt like making a few resolutions on New Year’s Eve as the ball dropped, but I had already been asleep for over two hours at that point. Perhaps “Stay up until past midnight at least once during 2015” should have been my first resolution. (Let’s say past 10 p.m., just to keep things realistic.)

Posted on January 12, 2015 |
By Zach Despart



BRISTOL — On Town Meeting Day, residents of the five-town area will vote on a proposed Mount Abraham Union Middle/High School budget that features spending that is virtually the same as what was approved for the current fiscal year.

The Fiscal Year 2015-2016 budget, approved by the Mount Abe board last week, calls for $14.06 million in spending, which is a fraction of a percent less than the $14.09 million spending plan voters approved last year.
