LEICESTER — The cucumber came soaring through the air in one smooth, effortless arc, landed solidly in 16-year-old Ernest Cormia’s hands, and then joined a growing pile of ripe vegetables in a five-gallon bucket at the end of the lush garden row.

“Toss me another,” Cormia called, and Bill Moore, a teacher at the Foxcroft Farm Harvest Program, hurled another across the garden.

NEW HAVEN — Heifers at the 4-H Youth Dairy Show Conformation Class at the Addison County Fair and Field Days are scrutinized on almost every physical trait — from their big wet noses to their tasseled tails, the animals are judged based on an “ideal” for the breed.

But the heifer is not the only one feeling the heat. To be a champion, handlers age eight to 18 must train and groom their animals to perfection.

Table Talk: Field Days Food

A weekly blog about everything from farming food to cooking it

Food stands lined the dirt paths of the fairgrounds, their colorful signs screaming “Zeppoles!” “‘Fresh squeezed’ lemonade!” “Fried Oreos!” “Italian sausage!” Yesterday was the first day of the 51st annual Addison County Fair and Field Days, and it was already crowded.

The people strolling the paths, licking ice cream, drinking sodas, eating delicious-smelling fried things had whipped my head into a frenzied state, and I was hungry.

Reporter John Flowers chimed in last week with news from Bright Planet. The Middlebury start-up is based just a hop, skip, and a jump from our own Marble Works headquarters, so naturally we've been paying attention to what the resident environmentalists are up to.

New chairlift on way to Snow Bowl

Posted on August 3, 2009 |

HANCOCK — By the time the Middlebury College Snow Bowl opens this winter, college officials expect a new $1.7 million, triple-chair lift will be ready to carry skiers and boarders to the top of the ski area, using the same route as the old lift.

The new lift will replace the 40-year-old Worth Mountain double-chair lift, which the college learned this spring no longer meets state licensing requirements. The lift in question is the ski area’s main route to the top, heading up the Allen Trail that overlooks the Snow Bowl’s base lodge.

Governor Douglas on healthcare: federal plan stresses coverage, not prevention

Posted on August 3, 2009 |
By John Flowers



By JOHN FLOWERS
MIDDLEBURY — Gov. James Douglas said last week he hopes federal lawmakers do not pass a healthcare reform bill that simply extends more coverage for the uninsured, but rather that the legislation stresses preventative care, cost cutting and promoting greater competition among private insurers.

Douglas discussed his views on healthcare, a new forecast of a $28 million state budget revenue shortfall and a variety of other topics during an interview at the Addison Independent.

VERGENNES — In 1999 Jason Ouellette, now a 26-year-old Vergennes police officer, became one of the first members of the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Vergennes, which at that point met at the National Guard Armory across Monkton Road from Vergennes Union High School.

Like many of the more than 1,000 regular attendees in the club’s 10-year history, Ouellette enjoyed hanging out after school in a place that offered video games, pool tables, air hockey and Pokémon tournaments.
