Victory Hemp buys full sun outside cmyk.jpg

MIDDLEBURY — Netaka White was understandably crestfallen when financial reasons forced him to shutter Full Sun Company’s Exchange Street plant after less than three years of producing sunflower and canola oils.

Mt Abe Mentoring program_2353.jpg

BRISTOL — “You know you changed my life, right?”

Short and sweet, these words spoken by a recent Mount Abraham Union High School graduate to his Starksboro mentor of 10 years capture the essence of mentoring programs.

The mission of the Mount Abraham Mentoring Program is to invest in, support and encourage healthy relationships between Mount Abe kids and adults. It’s a mission the program’s coordinator, Brenda McKean, feels is growing more important.

Posted on April 16, 2018 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



PANTON — Although some questions remain about the feasibility of a kitchen on the upper level of Panton Town Hall, work that voters approved on Town Meeting Day to improve the 19th-century structure will soon begin.

Overall plans call for making town hall’s two bathrooms handicap-accessible, replacing the handicap ramp, adding the kitchen, and installing a newly built, low-maintenance cupola to replace the deteriorated cupola that was removed in 2011.

The Outside Story: Porcupine salt cravings

Posted on April 16, 2018 |
By Susan Shea



The Outside Story Porcupine.jpg

When I was growing up, my family rented a vacation home on a mountain in southern Vermont. One night our dogs barking awakened us. Soon we heard a persistent gnawing on the outside of the house. My Dad went to investigate. His flashlight beam revealed a large porcupine with black, beady eyes. My father scared it away, but it returned other nights.

'No winter lasts forever; no spring skips its turn'

Posted on April 16, 2018 |
By Judith Irven



D51-0156.jpg

This wonderful saying by the American nature journalist, Hal Borland, perfectly captures my attitude at this time of year. 

And, while this has surely been an ornery winter, spring is officially here (technically it arrived on March 20 even if the temps might still need to climb a bit).
