BRIDPORT — Four years ago, Vergennes Union High School alum Dustin Dattilio was a junior at Castleton State College, studying to become an athletic trainer. He spent some of his down time in his dorm room with a sketch pad and pencil, doodling and taking requests from friends.

MIDDLEBURY — Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTrans) officials converged on Middlebury Thursday to ask local folks their thoughts about a $52 million plan to replace the town’s two crumbling downtown rail bridges.

FERRISBURGH — Ferrisburgh residents in Australian balloting on Thursday backed a new town charter that would give the selectboard the power to appoint Ferrisburgh’s town clerk and treasurer — but only by a two-vote margin in low turnout.

The tally backing the charter was 61-59, and only about 5.5 percent of Ferrisburgh’s eligible voters showed up at the town’s Route 7 office building to make their opinion known.

By ANDY KIRKALDY

VERGENNES — Several trees on the Vergennes downtown green are throwing too much shade, according to officials at last week’s city council meeting, specifically on the park’s struggling grass.

“I want to grow grass in the park,” said City Manager Mel Hawley.

VERGENNES — When you think of a church organist, it’s probably nothing like Jenny Bower. She’s 26, holds two Masters degrees — one in Organ and Harpsichord performance and the other in Geology and Earth Science. She likes Baroque, experimental classical music and is known to rock purple lipstick. And while, she plays the organ for the Vergennes Congregational Church every Sunday, she also plays in Burlington, Montpelier and pretty much any place else that will let her practice on their keys.

Bleeding hears_2851-.jpg

Everyone loves Bleeding Hearts, with their delicate flowers — each reminiscent of a little pink heart with a tiny drop of blood dripping from it — that are perfectly complimented by mounds of dainty fern-like leaves. They bloom in mid-spring, once the weather is settled and winter’s chill is out of the ground.

There are actually several kinds of Bleeding Hearts and their near relatives — all of which make delightful plants for the spring garden.
