Posted on February 6, 2017 |
By John Flowers



ADDISON COUNTY — Except in Bridport and Weybridge there will be few election-related issues to draw Middlebury-area voters to their polling places on Town Meeting Day, March 7.

Candidates for local school boards, selectboards and other municipal offices had until Jan. 30 to file nomination papers with their town clerks. A survey of town clerks in the Addison Central School District communities of Bridport, Cornwall, Middlebury, Ripton, Salisbury, Shoreham and Weybridge reveals:

Posted on February 6, 2017 |

MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury College sophomore Mehek Naqvi challenged the more than 500 people who rallied on campus Thursday afternoon to protest President Trump’s recent executive order banning visitors from seven Muslim-majority countries and all refugees.

A psychology and religion major from New Jersey, Naqvi denounced the ban as “an abhorrent practice based on religion” and asked what would happen if the 90-day ban extends to 90 months or 90 years? What would happen if the ban against citizens from seven countries expands to 14 or 28?

MIDDLEBURY — Victor Nuovo withdrew from his professorial duties at Middlebury College 23 years ago, but he has packed enough educational and intellectual activity in his golden years to fill a second résumé.

At an age when a lot of retirees would be happy to make it onto the golf course every once in a while, Nuovo, 85, has been playing his “back nine” in the storied halls of Oxford University, researching, compiling and editing books on the great 17th-century philosopher John Locke.

BRISTOL — Though Dale Helms has been making fine furniture for almost three and a half decades, he doesn’t call himself an artist. I know, it’s hard to believe. It’s even more unbelievable when you find out how much goes into every piece of his furniture. From a simple cheeseboard to a grand chair, dresser or bed, Helms has given thought to every inch of the piece; everything is done with intention.

RNeSU sticking to budget plans

Posted on February 6, 2017 |
By Lee J. Kahrs



BRANDON — The Rutland Northeast Supervisory Union has no intention of retooling its school budgets or waiting until a May date to have voters weigh in, despite what Gov. Phil Scott outlined in his budget address late last month.

The Brandon Reporter met with RNeSU Superintendent Jeanne Collins and Business Manager Brenda Fleming last week to discuss Scott’s directive, which came in a sweeping budget address just five days earlier.

Posted on February 6, 2017 |
By Mike Polhamus VTDigger.org



MONTPELIER — Vermont Gas Systems acknowledged Thursday that it “did not prudently plan and manage” a 41-mile pipeline extension in Addison County in the early stages of the project.
