ADDISON COUNTY — As town Green Up Day coordinators put away their sign-up sheets until next year, organizers of the May 6 events at the county and state level are working to figure out how well their system worked this year and how it can be improved for 2007.
The Addison County Solid Waste Management District took in 16.04 tons of waste collected in the county on Green Up Day, an annual day on which Vermonters pick up garbage along public roads.
“It went great,” said Bruce Webster, Goshen’s Green Up coordinator. “We had a good showing, but Goshen always does.”

SALISBURY — Relatively dry weather has kept the local mosquito population down this spring, but officials in the county’s two insect control districts have aircraft and supplies at the ready, should swarms rise from the swamps in the coming days.
As the Addison Independent went to press on Friday, mosquito numbers in the county were sparse. But officials acknowledged that a decent drenching — such as the soaking rain scheduled for this past weekend — could spawn new hatches of the pesky critters.
