Coyote hunt attracts protestors: Contest proceeds with limited success

BRISTOL — The coyote hunting contest scheduled for this past weekend by a Bristol man came off as planned. Plenty of protesters showed up, as well as almost three dozen hunters.

The only thing missing was a plentitude of coyotes.

Todd Baldwin, organizer of the “Wile E. Coyote Hunt 2017,” said the results were “not good”; only four coyote carcasses were turned in from a total of 35 registered hunters. Two of the coyotes were bagged in Rutland County, one in Panton and one in Starksboro; the largest was 42 pounds.

Middlebury police probing phony $100 bills

Posted on February 16, 2017 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury police believe they have pinpointed the source of some phony $100 bills passed at three local businesses on Feb. 10.

Middlebury Police Sgt. Mike Christopher said the bills in question are of the same size and coloring of a real $100 banknote, but are clearly marked as being non-negotiable. The words “For motion picture use only,” in capital letters, appear to the right of the depiction of Benjamin Franklin, as well as across the top of the back of the note.

Posted on February 16, 2017 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



FERRISBURGH — Ferrisburgh residents will probably vote as soon as this spring whether to approve the town’s first charter, one that would give the Ferrisburgh selectboard the power to appoint the town’s clerk and treasurer.

Elected officers now fill those positions, and selectboard members have not been pleased with the town treasurer’s job performance, but have said they have little recourse to deal with the issue because of his elected status.
