Mothers without borders

By CYRUS LEVESQUE

BRISTOL — The AIDS epidemic in Africa is hitting the country of Zambia especially hard. One in six adults in the country has HIV. About 630,000 children have been orphaned by the disease.

Two Bristol residents, Darla Senecal and Nancy Luke, are creating a local chapter of the organization of the organization Mothers Without Borders, which is trying to offer relief to those orphans.

The local chapter’s first project is collecting “Newborn Kits” for families in Zambia. These kits include six cloth diapers, one layette gown, one bar of soap, four diaper pins, three small plastic pants, one pair of baby socks, one receiving blanket, and one hat for a newborn.

Union asks ACSU for information

By JOHN FLOWERS

MIDDLEBURY — The union representing Addison Central Supervisory Union teachers has asked an Addison County Superior Court judge to compel ACSU Superintendent Lee Sease to turn over information that the superintendent insists he doesn’t have.

At issue is an ACSU-commissioned report, prepared by Bristol-based Barash Mediation Services, intended to recommend ways of promoting a more “civil and respectful” environment within district schools.

The Middlebury Union High School Teachers’ Association (MUHSTA) has seen the report, which addresses the district broadly, but wants a look at follow up reports created by Barash for some individual schools.

A closer look at milk hauling charges for farmers

By JOHN FLOWERS

MONTPELIER — The Vermont House and Senate have asked the Agency of Agriculture to study the impact of milk hauling and stop charges on Vermont dairy farmers, and determine whether those expenses could be reasonably shifted to manufacturers and/or consumers.

As it stands, farmers pay the costs for haulers to stop and collect their milk. They are also assessed a fee to have that milk hauled to processing facilities. The fees are deducted from the farmers’ milk checks.

For many farmers, these hauling and stop charges are not insignificant. Sen. Harold Giard, D-Bridport, a former dairy farmer, said he paid upward of $20,000 per year to have his milk hauled to processing facilities in Massachusetts. Giard said he has a cousin in Bridport who milks 90 cows and paid $21,000 in charges last year. He heard recently from a farmer in the Northeast Kingdom who milks 30 cows and pays $4,800 annually in charges.

CSAC plans local school

By JOHN FLOWERS

MIDDLEBURY — The Counseling Service of Addison County (CSAC) is planning a new school in Middlebury that would cater to local students who cannot thrive in traditional public school settings due to severe emotional and behavioral problems.

Counseling Service officials brought their CSAC school proposal to the Middlebury Zoning Board of Adjustment on Monday. They are seeking the board’s permission to establish the new school in 1,450 square feet of space in the Middlebury College-owned office building located off Route 7 South, across from the A&W Restaurant.

Robert Thorn, executive director of CSAC, said his agency would work with local middle and high schools to identify students who might benefit from the Counseling Service program. Those students, according to a CSAC project narrative, would have “severe emotional disturbance and behavioral and emotional issues that prevent public school placement.�

Rainville throws hat into House race

By JOHN FLOWERS

MIDDLEBURY — Until recent­ly, Martha Rainville’s presence in a room would command either great trepidation or intense joy among those who would hang on her every word.

As adjutant general of the Vermont National Guard, it was Maj. Gen. Rainville’s duty to send troops off to battle zones and make somber walks to a podium to release the names of Vermont soldiers killed during the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

On the other hand, Rainville presided over many a repatriation ceremony, at which soldiers and their families celebrated joyful reunions.

Rainville last month traded in her military fatigues for some civilian attire en route to what she hopes will be a new career serving the public — as Vermont’s lone U.S. House member in Washington, D.C.
