Posted on August 26, 2010 |
By Angelo Lynn



Tuesday’s Democratic primary race for governor goes into the history books as one of the most competitive and closest with five excellent candidates — four of whom had near-equal support across all sectors of the state. With Senate President Pro Tempore Peter Shumlin leading Sen. Doug Racine by just 182 votes at 25 percent of the vote total, and Sec. of State Deb.

Around the bend: On-line auction gives cheap thrills

By Jessie Raymond



People tend to assume I’m mild-mannered just because I drive the speed limit, avoid trans fats and consider it a wild Friday night if I stay up until 10 knitting socks. But I’m a thrill-seeker, all right.

I get my kicks on eBay.

For the uninformed, eBay is a website where people can buy and sell items in an auction format. Find something you like, enter the highest (non-disclosed) amount you’re willing to spend, and click on Place Bid. Your bid will automatically be raised against competing bids until your limit is reached.

Vt. angler tests Montana waters

The second thing I noticed about the river was the incredible color of the stones beneath my feet. Though the dominant hues were various — dark and light shades of lavender, violet and magenta — there were also hues of green, blue, gray, yellow, red and brown. Most of the stones were solid colors, ranging in size from a pea or marble to the palm of my hand to a men’s size 15 workboot. But there were striped, mottled and speckled rocks as well.

County voters back Dunne, Shumlin

Posted on August 26, 2010 |

CORRECTION: Sen. Peter Shumlin, D-Putney, received 41 votes in Ripton for the Aug. 24 Democrat primary for governor, not the mere four tallies reported in the Thursday, Aug. 26, edition of the Addison Independent. This means that Shumlin notched a total of 1,395 votes in Addison County, not the 1,356 previously reported. This total of 1,395 means that Shumlin was in fact the top vote-getter in the county, narrowly eclipsing Hartland Democrat Matt Dunne’s 1,372 tallies.

NEW HAVEN/STARKSBORO — Rep. Chris Bray, D-New Haven, and Starksboro Republican Mark Snelling finished on the losing end of their respective party’s primary races for lieutenant governor, but voters have likely not heard the last from the two candidates.

“For my first statewide race coming from a small town in Addison County, I’m pleased at how close I was,” Bray, a two-term House incumbent said in reaction to his loss, by 52 percent to 48 percent of the vote, to Rep. Steve Howard, D-Rutland City.

BRIDPORT — Sen. Harold Giard, D-Bridport, woke up Wednesday morning with a new lease on his political life after surviving a spirited challenge from East Middlebury resident Amy Sheldon in a close Democrat write-in campaign for state Senate.
