By Eric L. Davis



Last week’s decision by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission to extend Vermont Yankee’s operating license for another 20 years does not end the controversy over the future of the plant.

Schools get a jolt of healthy energy

By Andrew Stein

BRISTOL — Students at three Addison Northeast Supervisory Union schools have kissed desserts, processed foods and daily hamburgers goodbye because the ANeSU’s new Food Service Cooperative isn’t having any of it.

When Kathy Alexander, president of the Vermont School Nutrition Association, grabbed the cooperative’s reigns last summer, the food staff put down their box cutters and picked up their paring knives, changed recipes to include healthier ingredients, and instituted a tighter fiscal monitoring system.

Thoughts as many seasons blend together

We all have personal markers for the arrival of spring.

Mine include seeing Middlebury College baseball and softball scores show up from Florida or Arizona against schools I’ve never heard of, (McHenry County?), trash-talking at our annual fantasy baseball draft, (it did not go unremarked-upon that our defending champ bought non-Cy Young candidates Doug Fister, Vin Mazzaro and David Pauley), and second-guessing winter high school all-star teams (no Carl Leduc on the boys’ Lake Division stars, and no Tiger skaters on the Free Pressteams?)

MIDDLEBURY — The national media has been abuzz with the story of Pathik “Tik” Root, a Middlebury College student who went missing two weeks ago while studying Arabic in Syria. Last weekend, Syrian authorities confirmed they had detained Ripton native, but have not said when they will release him.

But as they watch reports on Root’s disappearance roll out, his parents, friends and professors say there’s a side of the 21-year-old that has not been captured in any of those stories.

Between the Lines: Confessions of a Vermontaholic

Posted on March 31, 2011 |
By Gregory Dennis



 

My name is Greg and I am a Vermontaholic. This is my story.

As with so many other Vermontaholics, my addiction started in childhood.

They say that parents should keep their kids away from the hard stuff, and that was certainly true in my case. I’m one of many for whom, at a tragically young age, the gateway drug was skiing.

I could handle it OK when my parents took me skiing near home in central New York State. Even in the Adirondacks at Whiteface and Big Tupper, I didn’t get addicted.

Vermont gas eyes county for pipeline

Posted on March 31, 2011 |
By John Flowers



 

ADDISON COUNTY — A Chittenden County-based utility is working on a $60 million-$70 million plan to extend natural gas pipeline through Vergennes and Middlebury within the next five years.

Proponents contend the project would offer a cheaper, cleaner heating fuel source for area businesses and homes; though some critics urge that environmental and cost claims not be taken at face value.

Addison to revote on board unification

Posted on March 31, 2011 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



 

VERGENNES — Addison residents will be joining Vergennes citizens in voting for a second time this year on proposed one-board governance for the Addison Northwest Supervisory Union.

Residents in both those communities on Town Meeting Day backed a proposal for one board to own and operate the four ANwSU schools, but now will reconsider that support in a second vote.

If the Unified Union (UU) proposal survives both upcoming revotes, it would be the first significant consolidation move in Vermont.
