By Andy Kirkaldy



FERRISBURGH — The Ferrisburgh selectboard and more than 30 residents at a Tuesday meeting at the town office building backed a plan to install traffic lights and a crosswalk at the intersection of Route 7 with Old Hollow and Stage roads.

Vermont Agency of Transportation officials estimated it would cost about $500,000, which they say federal funds would pay for because the project would address safety concerns.

A New Haven man shot and killed a coyote when it charged him in his yard this past Thursday, according to Vermont wildlife officials. That came 10 days after a coyote attacked a man and woman outside their Salisbury home, and the man shot the animal.

State Department of Health officials confirmed that the coyotes in both cases suffered from rabies.

MIDDLEBURY — Mary Hogan Elementary School 6th-grader Heath Odell and a handful of his classmates darted to the Elderly Services Inc. music room last Friday morning, where they each picked an elderly partner whom they led to the center of the welcoming space.

While musician Judd Markowski squeezed out a lively tune on his accordion, the children tenderly clasped their partners’ hands and gently guided them in dance while seniors too frail to join in beamed from chairs along the sideline.

New Haven kayak ledges race, winner CMYK.jpg

BRISTOL — The temperatures were up on this past Saturday afternoon for the 11th annual New Haven Ledges kayak race down the New Haven River in Bristol, and so were the water levels.

Forty-nine whitewater paddling competitors dipped in at the starting gate just above Eagle Park on the Lincoln Road before plunging into a 1.3-mile course that required them to navigate waterfalls of up to 15 feet in height — that one’s called “The Toaster.” Overall they would drop around 130 feet in elevation in a little more than a minute and a half.

Flansburg, who was an acting sergeant at the time of this incident while New Haven Barracks Lt. Jeff Danoski was in Rutland on temporary assignment, has since returned to full duty as a trooper, according to the VSP.
