Otter Valley High School budget shot down again

May 10, 2007

By MEGAN JAMES

BRANDON — For the second time this spring, voters in Rutland Northeast Supervisory Union towns have rejected a proposed 2007-2008 spending plan for Otter Valley Union High School. The tally in Tuesday’s balloting on a revised budget of $10,884,962  was 587 opposed and 455 in favor.

The original budget proposal, which was $106,565 larger than the one voted on this week, was defeated, 1,250-911, on Town Meeting Day, along with $10 million in renovation and construction bonds.

With informational meetings hosted by the OV school board poorly attended since officials first floated the bond proposals last fall, it was no surprise to some that Tuesday’s revote attracted less than half the turnout of the original vote in March.

Mosquitoes ... they are a-comin'

May 10, 2007

By JOHN FLOWERS

BRIDPORT — Receding flood waters and cold nights have helped keep biting bugs at bay thus far this spring, but officials in the county’s two mosquito-control districts know that warming temperatures will soon lead to a sizable hatch of insects.

Last week saw representatives of the Brandon-Leicester-Salisbury-Goshen (BLSG) and Lemon Fair Insect Control Districts (LFICD) get their equipment and larvicide stocks ready for what has become an annual battle against swarms of bloodthirsty insects.

“We are surveying every day and keeping a close watch on things,” said BLSG district Coordinator Kim Schroeder. “It has been a wet spring, and we’re hoping things dry up a bit more before it warms up.”

That’s because mosquitoes thrive in warm, wet conditions. The insects lay their eggs in swamps and pools of standing water. With help from the sun, those eggs mature into larvae, then full-fledged mosquitoes.

And the Academy goes to ...

May 10, 2007

By JOHN FLOWERS

MIDDLEBURY — Rick Heinrichs’ first job more than 30 years ago was serving up food at Mister Up’s Restaurant in Middlebury.

On May 25, Heinrichs — now an Academy Award winning production designer — will help serve up the latest installment of the wildly popular “Pirates of the Caribbean” film series on which he worked in such exotic locales as the Bahamas.

Heinrichs, a former Shoreham resident, was in Middlebury late last week to give some cinema-related pointers to dozens of aspiring actors and film production students at the Patricia A. Hannaford Career Center’s Addison Repertory Theater (A.R.T.).

During a far-ranging presentation that included projection images of the soon-to-be-released “Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End,” Heinrichs recounted the challenges of creating the sets and props that breathe life into today’s multi-million-dollar blockbusters.
