Posted on February 15, 2018 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — According to 2016 data provided by the Vermont nonprofit Age Well, 19.9 percent of Addison County residents — nearly one in every five — are age 65 years or older. That’s up from 13.4 percent in 2011.

As Addison County’s elderly population continues to grow, so does the strain on the organizations charged with making sure that demographic does not go hungry.

Bixby JeffFritz1053 Lead.jpg

This past Sunday afternoon some lucky history buffs got to meet a 188-year-old Vergennes icon. Adorning his classic brown suit and tie and capped off with his fez, Mr. William Grove Bixby gave a tour of his namesake, the Bixby Memorial Library.

Not buying it?

OK, neither are we.

Of course the original Bixby is dead. In fact he died way back in February of 1907. But his legacy is very much still alive in the Little City.

Bristol to vote on 1.5 percent town spending increase

Posted on February 12, 2018 |
By Christopher Ross



BRISTOL — At the annual town meeting next month, Bristol voters will be asked to approve a fiscal year 2019 municipal spending plan that represents an increase of 1.5 percent to $2,609,402, and would require a projected increase of 2.7 percent in the municipal tax rate.

While the budget warned by the selectboard would make small changes in the big-ticket highway and general fund spending items, the biggest shifts would be in spending on the recreation department (down 10.3 percent) and voter appropriations (up 11.7 percent).

VERGENNES — In an unexpected and unprecedented move, two-time Vergennes Mayor Michael Daniels resigned on Thursday, alleging in a statement a poor working relationship with the Vergennes City Council and citing a disagreement with council members on how a recent complaint against city hall employees was handled.

“I was told right at the beginning by several council members that we are all equal; stop running out in front and work with the council. I will no longer be a puppet,” read one sentence in Daniels’ statement.

MIDDLEBURY — Terri Arnold’s love for Vermont and her eagerness to take on a challenge were what motivated her to take the helm of the Middlebury Parks & Recreation Department in late 2012.

A little more than five years later, Arnold, 60, has placed the department on a solid foundation in a brand new recreation facility.

Chefs can be a particular lot, with specific preferences and particular methods to getting their culinary creations just so. But the relatively new chef at The Lobby in Middlebury is quite the opposite.

“There’s no ego in my food,” chef Jeff Silver said in an interview last week. “What matters is that customers enjoy it and want to come back for more. The sustainability of the restaurant is the most important thing.”
