SHOREHAM — WhistlePig Whiskey of Shoreham last month introduced The Boss Hog series, a unique version of its whiskey that will be released each year. Company officials said this represents the finest and most unique rye in WhistlePig’s barrel barns.

My wife and I left Vergennes in the summer of 2004 and when I saw the Jeff Margolis/VTDigger article on the Vergennes referendum regarding the Vermont Gas pipeline I felt I needed to speak out. The article brought back memories of another energy line involving Vergennes in 2003 and 2004. That line was the VELCO Northwest Reliability Project (NWRP).

I will not be running for re-election in November of 2014.
I am happy and humbled to have had the opportunity to serve in the Vermont Legislature as one of Middlebury’s representatives in the General Assembly. I have long been interested in and active in politics, and my election in 2010 was a big step for my activism — and a big commitment. Now, my growing responsibilities to my customers and employees require that I return my focus to their interests.
Step into this house, girl, and I’ll sing for you a song. I’ll tell you all about where I’ve been. It shouldn’t take too long.
I lived with the decent folks in the hills of old Vermont. Where what you do all day depends on what you want.
I took up with a woman there when I was just a kid, and I smile like the sun to think of the loving that we did. Yankee lady so good to me, Yankee lady, just a memory.
