MIDDLEBURY — State Sen. Doug Racine, D-Richmond, came within a few percentage points of becoming Vermont’s governor in 2002. He lost that race to current Gov. James Douglas, but is banking on being on the positive side of the voting ledger against a different field of opponents next year.

Racine, one of the first declared gubernatorial candidates for 2010, discussed his candidacy and the issues that he believes will shape the race, during a far ranging interview at the Addison Independent on Monday.

Middlebury readies for 'connector' road around municipal building

MIDDLEBURY — People who routinely travel past the Middlebury municipal building at the intersection of College and South Main streets may soon have a clearer view — and one that may not be more pleasing to some people, at least not initially.

Middlebury officials confirmed last week that a second round of tree harvesting will likely occur on the municipal complex grounds sometime in October, this time in an area behind the municipal parking lot that borders the town gym.

College endowment takes big hit, but loss not as bad as expected

By Kathryn Flagg



MIDDLEBURY — It’s a strange turn of events when a nearly 16 percent hit on endowment returns is viewed as good news at any institution.

But that’s the case, relatively speaking, at Middlebury College, where administrators report that the current fiscal year kicked off with a balanced budget.

MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury native Olivier Knox spends a lot of time doing translation.
It’s not really language translation — although he is a correspondent for Agence France-Presse (AFP), the oldest and third-largest news agency in the world. He has worked as a journalist in Washington, D.C., since 1996, and writes his stories in English.

But the translation he does is cultural — explaining what goes on in Washington from an international perspective.

"Cow Power" producers suffer losses

Posted on October 1, 2009 |
By Kathryn Flagg



ADDISON COUNTY — Central Vermont Public Service’s “Cow Power” program, which enlists farms to convert manure to electricity using on-farm anaerobic digesters, has been lauded in recent years as a revolutionary way to generate renewable energy and support local farms.

But wholesale energy prices plummeted earlier this year. With Cow Power rates contractually tied to the price of wholesale energy, farmers participating in the fledgling program found themselves producing two commodities at a loss: milk and electricity.

Neighbors seek to stop pit Middlebury proposal

Posted on October 1, 2009 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — Opponents of a proposed new, 16-acre gravel pit off Route 116 have asked the Middlebury Development Review Board (DRB) to dismiss the application in light of what they see as a major conflict with the town’s zoning rules.

And barring outright dismissal of the application, the opponents — consisting primarily of neighbors of the proposed pit — are asking the DRB to delay its review of the application to give them more time to prepare rebuttal testimony.

A new Snelling set for lieutenant governor run

By John Flowers



STARKSBORO — A political consultant would advise most new candidates to start off aspiring to a lower rung on the electoral ladder than lieutenant governor.

But when the candidate’s last name is Snelling, one can throw conventional political wisdom out the window. The son of the late Vermont Gov. Richard Snelling and former Lt. Gov. Barbara Snelling, Republican Mark Snelling confirmed on Tuesday his plans to seek the state’s second-highest executive post in the November 2010 elections.

Ferrisburgh OKs limited Route 7 development

By Andy Kirkaldy



FERRISBURGH — The Ferrisburgh Zoning Board of Adjustment has issued a conditional approval of a Champlain Oil Co. plan for a gas station, convenience store and fast-food restaurant on Route 7. But the approval came without elements of the proposal that COCO officials said were critical to their business plan: diesel fuel pumps and a drive-through window for the restaurant.

The board (ZBA) took that action on Sept. 16 and publicized it last week once COCO acknowledged it had received the ruling in the mail.

MIDDLEBURY — The former Vermont State Craft Center (VSCC) building at 1 Mill St. in Middlebury will reopen this fall as an art gallery, this time under private ownership.

Cornwall resident George Dorsey last week confirmed his plan to purchase the Frog Hollow building, which for more than three decades had been owned and operated by the nonprofit VSCC as a gallery, retail store and headquarters for art and craft classes.
