By Mike Polahamus of VTDigger.org



MONKTON — Bearing banners and singing songs, several dozen protesters blocked an expected appraisal Thursday at Monkton resident Claire Broughton’s property, where Vermont Gas Systems is seeking to lay a natural gas pipeline over her objections.

By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — Few contested races will appear on ballots in Vergennes, Ferrisburgh and Addison, although last-minute interest in seats on the proposed 12-member board to govern all four Addison Northwest Supervisory Union schools could create more contests.

That school board will only be created if the proposed unification measure passes on March 1. Unlike for other offices, the deadline for filing papers for seats on that board is this coming Monday, Feb. 1, not this past Monday, Jan. 25.

By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — Replacing the Main Street and Merchants Row bridges at their existing clearance level of 18 feet, 8 inches would shave about $4 million off the project price tag and 11 weeks off its construction timetable compared to the current plan that would raise clearance to 21 feet, according to the lead engineer and Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTrans) officials.

It caught on with his friends and neighbors, which inspired him to make a commercial venture out of the drink, made simply from tea, sugar, water, and a symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast.

By Andy Kirkaldy



ADDISON — The Addison Central School board on Jan. 21 adopted a $1,606,375 spending proposal for the 2016-2017 school year that, if approved on Town Meeting Day, would make few changes to school’s program and would raise spending by 4.12 percent, or about $63,000.

That increase is almost entirely driven by an expected hike of roughly 8 percent in health insurance benefits and contracted raises, said Addison Northwest Supervisory Union Superintendent JoAn Canning this week.
