I look forward to serving in the Legislature with Taborri Bruhl when he is elected to represent New Haven, Weybridge and Bridport, and urge the folks of those towns to vote for him. He has a breadth of experience that’s impressive and will serve him and his constituents well in the House.
He understands the difficulties of financing a college education faced by many Vermonters. Even with a pizza delivery job and the ability to fix large diesel machines, he still needed a Marine scholarship to get himself to graduation.
Having failed to convince the public that our disastrous War on Drugs will find success if we just wait long enough, prohibitionists have frantically switched arguments, and now warn about the supposed evils of “big weed” and “commercialization,” rather than the substance itself. If we legalize cannabis, they say (now), money-hungry corporations will air advertisements on Saturday morning cartoons and hook your kids.
You’ve probably heard of successful “Lost dog, now found” stories about Sole and Murphy who were missing for weeks in Vermont. Please help me make my own success story! My dog “Lincoln,” a Red Heeler/Cattle Dog, went missing on Aug. 3 near Huntington.
FERRISBURGH — Soon — possibly by the end of next week — a 10-year-old Ferrisburgh business will move about a third of a mile south along Route 7 to a new home next to The Dock Doctors.
The Ferrisburgh Bake Shop and Deli, founded in 2006 by Ferrisburgh resident Lisa Denton next to the town’s Route 7 post office, will take over renovated space that most recently housed convenience store/gas station/deli Vermont Energy Co., and before then the Little Otter General Store.
MIDDLEBURY — The United Way of Addison County (UWAC) has historically enlisted a lot of local movers-and-shakers to head up its annual fund drives. This year’s team is also formidable, and comes with a special blessing.
MIDDLEBURY — The causes of multiple sclerosis (MS) remain somewhat of a mystery, but research is producing new treatments and medications that are allowing patients to maintain better quality of life.
“Everyone has their own version of it,” said Dr. Andrew Solomon, a UVM Medical Center neurologist and director of institution’s Multiple Sclerosis Center. “It’s a combination of genetics and environmental triggers. There have been hundreds of genes that have been associated with MS.”
BRISTOL — Visiting Milton scored early and late to earn a 2-1 victory over the Mount Abraham Union High School boys’ soccer team on Tuesday, but Eagle Coach Mike Corey was not unhappy afterward about his inexperienced group’s effort.
The senior-laden Milton squad improved to 3-2, with those losses coming on the road in close games to Division I teams with winning records, while Corey’s Eagles — starting only three seniors — dropped to 2-2.
BRISTOL — The Vermont Board of Education on Tuesday approved the Addison Northeast Supervisory Union’s plan to unify governance and budgeting at the Bristol-area schools.
The decision on whether to move forward with that plan is now in the hands of the five-town electorate, which will vote on it Nov. 8.
