Ayer, Claire 06 RGB.jpg

MONTPELIER — Saying she wants to help train and encourage a new generation of leaders in the state’s highest chamber, longtime Addison County Sen. Claire Ayer confirmed this week that she will run for the top leadership position in the Vermont Senate.

And it looks like the Addison Democrat will have plenty of competition for the job of Senate president pro tempore — including from within her own senatorial district, which includes Addison County, Huntington and Buel’s Gore.

RIPTON — Rep. Willem Jewett, D-Ripton, told the Addison Independent this week that he will not seek re-election after 14 years representing the Addison-2 district, a tenure that saw him serve in some key House leadership positions and become a mainstay of the House Judiciary Committee.

Jewett, 52, also waged a successful and public battle against cancer, using his position in the public eye to shed more light on non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, a disease with which he was diagnosed in early 2008.

MIDDLEBURY — Vermont House Speaker Shap Smith is seeking Vermont’s second-highest constitutional office.

The 50-year-old Morrisville Democrat confirmed his bid for lieutenant governor on Tuesday during a far ranging interview at the Addison Independent.

Bernie Sanders LEAD RGB.jpg

ST. ALBANS — Two years ago, Lindsay Hunn walked into an office building on South Main Street in St. Albans looking for a job in the legal world. As fate would have it, she had the address wrong and walked out as a full-time volunteer for the Vermont Democratic Party.

One year later, Hunn was hired as a field organizer in New Hampshire, making thousands of phone calls to get troops on the ground for Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders’ 2016 presidential campaign.

Hannah Bureau: Paintings on exhibit at Edgewater Gallery

Posted on May 19, 2016 |
By Addison Independent



hannah bureau 2.jpg

If you have seen her textural, softly geometric landscapes, it should come as no surprise, that painter Hanna Bureau prefers grays. Before this description brings the word “drab” to mind, know that with these grays Bureau builds vibrant impressions of a scene observed. Fields and sky are rendered in warm and cool grays, with strokes of lilac, ashen green, and blue. Bureau’s wide, fluid brush strokes, thick with paint, impart the richness in the memory of a landscape, while her palette acts as the soft haze of recollection.

By Matt Dickerson



Matt Dickerson col Cadoret pike 7194.jpg

I had been on the river for less than an hour when I heard the distinctive “loot galoot” of a bittern. The sound brought back memories from 45 years earlier, and childhood fishing trips to northern Maine with my father pursuing wild brook trout. But this trip was in Vermont. And I was not pursuing trout. I was chasing after pike. Or, rather, hoping pike would do some chasing.
