Farmers focus on water quality issue

Posted on February 5, 2015 |
By John Flowers



BRIDPORT — Members of Addison County’s agricultural community are concerned about how they could be affected by the state’s latest push to clean up Lake Champlain.

Gov. Peter Shumlin in his January inaugural address cited cleanup of the lake as one of his top priorities for the 2015-2016 biennium. He noted that farmers must play a key role in that effort, through water quality initiatives that are in part designed to reduce manure runoff into Lake Champlain. Manure is a leading source of phosphorous pollution in the lake.

Weybridge charter change pitched

Posted on February 5, 2015 |
By Addison Independent



WEYBRIDGE — Weybridge officials are proposing to change the municipality’s charter in a manner that would allow for its town clerk and treasurer to be appointed by the selectboard, rather than elected by the public.

This means that the person or people taking these positions would no longer have to reside in the town of Weybridge and would be appointed by the selectboard. Panton approved a similar charter change last year.

By Addison Independent



Slot Canyon presentation.jpg

MIDDLEBURY — Rich and Sheri Larsen will present “Exploring the Slot Canyons of Southern Utah” on Thursday, Feb. 26, at 7 p.m. at Ilsley Library in Middlebury.

 Southern Utah is a stark and wildly beautiful land of sandstone carved into countless canyons, ranging in size from Colorado River canyons to slots so tight a person cannot fit through. The Larsens, often with accomplices from Vermont and other states, have now made a dozen trips to Utah to play in slot canyons.

Guest editorial: Gun control crosses current of Vermont's political tides

Posted on February 5, 2015 |
By Emerson Lynn



No state is more liberal than Vermont when it comes to its politics. And no state is more conservative than Vermont when it comes to its guns.

Raise my taxes.

Tell me where I can build my home and where I can’t.

Tell me which doctor I can visit.

Clippings: All taxpayers have 'skin in the game'

Posted on February 5, 2015 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



Let me be clear: I value holding onto my money as much as anybody. I brown-bag, buy in bulk, and browse for products on sale.

And I wish my taxes were lower. For the record, we pay almost $6,600 on a Middlebury home assessed at about $250,000. Property tax relief doesn’t really help much, if at all, depending on fluctuations in one of our incomes.

Eric Davis: Vermont needs reliable highway funding

Posted on February 5, 2015 |
By Eric L. Davis



On most issues, Gov. Shumlin would not see eye-to-eye with Robert Bentley, the conservative Republican governor of Alabama. Yet, last week Govs. Shumlin and Bentley appeared together before the U.S. Senate Environment and Public Works Committee. Bentley and Shumlin, speaking on behalf of their colleagues in the National Governors Association, urged Congress to pass a multi-year extension of the federal highway trust fund.

Opinion: Fritz not just a good renovator

Posted on February 5, 2015 |
By Terry Faith Weihs Terry



In Thursday’s, Jan. 29, article, “Vergennes duels set for city council,” longtime Addison Independent reporter Andy Kirkaldy describes candidate Jeff Fritz, as “best known in Vergennes for purchasing a large Victorian Main Street home in 2011 and renovating it before moving there from Washington state.” While committing substantive energy and resources to the restoration of one of our most important Vergennes residential assets is in and of itself most admirable, Andy missed the point.
