Orwell farm loses half its turkeys to fowl cholera outbreak

Posted on November 21, 2016 |
By Gaen Murphree



ORWELL — Hail, flood, drought, plagues of locusts — since ancient times farming has been one of the riskiest of human endeavors. And it still is. Just ask Orwell turkey farmer Peter Stone, who’s facing devastating losses just as the calendar nears Turkey Day.

An outbreak of what’s known as fowl cholera, possibly introduced into one of the eight barns at Stone’s Stonewood Farm by a determined fox or bobcat, has claimed 15,000 turkeys — nearly half of Stonewood’s 2016 flock of 32,000 birds.

He and his wife and youngest son moved to Vermont from New York state.

Wool insulation study Wool insulate 6.jpg

NEW HAVEN — Since shortly after its glory days supplying wool blankets and uniforms to Union troops during the Civil War, the Vermont wool industry has been struggling to regain its footing.

Now a New Haven farm is taking part in a UVM study to determine the feasibility of using wool as an environmentally friendly building insulation. Researchers hope this use could create a whole new market for the 100,000-some-odd pounds of wool that’s sheared each year off Vermont sheep and give a much-needed boost to the state’s sheep industry.

New Middlebury gym gets mostly thumbs up as new polling place

MIDDLEBURY —  Prior to Nov. 8, some Middlebury residents had raised concerns about how voters would adjust to the new polling place at the town’s recreation facility at 151 Creek Road.

With the General Election now squarely in the rearview mirror, town officials said they have received mostly positive reviews from local voters, who for the first time in many years — perhaps ever — cast ballots in a venue outside of the core village area.

MIDDLEBURY — Sitting in Middlebury’s Sama’s Cafe on Monday morning, Sujata Moorti sighed deeply.

The Middlebury College professor of Gender, Sexuality and Feminist Studies had been processing the results of last week’s election. Like many people around her, she believes President-elect Donald J. Trump will encourage the “rolling back” of important policies — ones that promote the well-being of women, members of the LGBTQ community, people of color and marginalized religious groups, among others.

ADDISON COUNTY — The 2016 deer rifle season in Addison County began with easily the most productive opening weekend since 2005, when the Vermont Department of Fish & Wildlife banned shooting two-point “spikehorn” bucks during Vermont’s 16-day November rifle season.

The county’s weigh stations handled 249 deer, 49 more than the previous best opening weekend total, 200 in 2013, since the 2005 rule change.

The next best opening weekend totals since then came in 2010 (192) and in 2015 (188).
