MONTPELIER — Hunters are gearing up for the start of Vermont’s statewide traditionally popular 16-day rifle deer season that begins Saturday, Nov. 15, and ends Sunday, Nov. 30.
A hunter may take one buck during this season with at least one antler having two or more points one inch or longer. A point must be one inch or longer from base to tip. The main beam counts as a point, regardless of length. Spike-antlered deer, mostly yearlings, are protected during this season.
In the race for Vermont’s lone congressman, incumbent Democrat Rep. Peter Welch is our overwhelming choice, and he should be Vermont’s clear favorite as well.
ADDISON COUNTY — In recent proceedings in the Addison County Superior Court, Criminal Division:
Benjamin J. Adams of Salisbury, 34, pleaded innocent to Oct. 19 charges of violation of an abuse prevention order, first-degree unlawful restraint and driving with a suspended license and was released with conditions.
BRISTOL — Sheila McGrory-Klyza is quick to admit that she loves France.
“I’m a big Francophile,” she said.
McGrory-Klyza studied in France as an undergraduate at Wake Forest University, and in the last decade moved her family to our country’s oldest ally for a total of one year.
Now, the Bristol food writer-turned-author is releasing her debut novel, which was inspired by McGrory-Klyza’s experiences raising her children in a foreign country.
In recent issues my age, or lack thereof, has been a subject of much controversy. The diversity of opinion has made for great debate and banter.
As the person who asked the question at the last forum held on Oct. 27. “Past behavior/history is a precursor for future behavior/history.” I asked after the board itself acknowledged that a bond in this district has never passed on the first try.
As a child growing up in Vermont I gave my parents ample opportunity to teach me life lessons. To this day I carry with me much of what I learned. Recently I had the chance to relive one of those lessons. The lesson being, “how to take the measure of a man.” The answer, watch his actions when he doesn’t think people are looking.
My husband and I retired to Vermont in July ’06. We first met Mike Fisher and Dave Sharpe the following March at the Starksboro Town Meeting. Since then we’ve gotten to know both men better. We find them to be thoughtful, fair and honest men, who care about their constituents. Dave is now the ranking member of the House Ways & Means Committee, and Mike is the Chairman of the House Health Care Committee. Both jobs bring extra work and greater responsibility.
