LINCOLN — School board officials in Lincoln last week warned a proposed 2010-2011 school year spending plan after a vote on the budget was put on hold at the town’s annual meeting in early March.

The new spending plan calls for $1,609,535 in expenditures. According to Addison Northeast Supervisory Union business manager, the educational spending in the budget is virtually unchanged from the $1.4 million figure presented to the town in early March.

By Andy Kirkaldy



ADDISON — Addison residents will join Vergennes voters in reconsidering the Town Meeting Day decision to approve changing governance of the Addison Northwest Supervisory Union to a one-board system.

Addison residents voted, 197-138, or 59-41 percent, on March 2, in favor of one-board governance, which would replace the current eight-board system. Three of the current boards — the Vergennes, Panton and Waltham ID boards — are set to dissolve in July regardless.

By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — State and local police officials offered few details on the reasons behind a stepped-up security presence at Gov. James Douglas’s property off South Munger Street late last week.

Neighbors and passersby noted, at one point on Thursday, three Vermont State Police cruisers and one Middlebury police vehicle near the governor’s home.

The space in question is around 1,500 square feet and was previously occupied by a liquor store, according to Hunt.

NEW HAVEN — Tyler McGuire set about an adventure to build his own airplane in exactly the manner one might expect a 20-year-old college student to do: He jumped in headfirst.

The New Haven resident was holed up at college in Florida with his friend Abe Nehemias when the two aerospace engineering students considered the notion to build a functional airplane from a partially manufactured kit.

MIDDLEBURY — Construction on the Cross Street Bridge project will begin to spill into the center of downtown Middlebury beginning on Monday, April 5, when road and utilities work will kick into overdrive and create some slower going for traffic in some locations through the early fall.

VERGENNES — As expected, Vergennes officials were handed on Tuesday a petition calling for a revote of the city’s Town Meeting Day decision to approve changing governance of the Addison Northwest Supervisory Union to a one-board system.

City Manager Mel Hawley said Aldermen Ziggy Comeau and David Austin and former planning commission member Michael Ferland each dropped off petitions with signatures calling for a second vote on the question. The total number of signatures totaled 85, in excess of the 75 needed to trigger a revote.
