Homeless facing wage shortfall: Most work, but high cost of shelter, child care challenging

ADDISON COUNTY — It’s easy to assume the typical homeless person is unemployed and therefore unable to afford a roof and four walls.

The reality in Addison County is far different.

Almost all the temporary inhabitants of the John Graham Emergency shelter in Vergennes are employed, but are simply not earning enough to land one of the few vacant apartments in our area, according to local advocates.

ADDISON COUNTY — Area deer hunters enjoyed the second-best rifle deer season since 2005, bringing 554 bucks to Addison County weigh stations during the 16-day season that ran Nov. 11 to 26.

That total of deer taken came just 19 short of 2016’s total of 573, the highest since Vermont wildlife officials in 2005 banned the taking of spikehorn bucks during November’s rifle season, the most popular of the state’s deer hunting seasons.

SHOREHAM — Two decades ago, Ray Gauthier and his family were in the market for a Christmas tree. They had plenty of options, but elected to visit the Red Sled Christmas Tree Farm on Route 74 West in Shoreham.

VERGENNES — At just three weeks old, tiny Hunter holds the distinction of being the youngest resident of the John W. Graham Emergency Shelter in Vergennes.

He doesn’t realize he and his 28-year-old mom, Sammie, don’t have a home of their own.

But Sammie plans to change all that, and she’s getting a big lift from John Graham Housing & Services (JGHS), the nonprofit that runs the Vergennes shelter and five multi-unit apartment buildings in the county.

Make your own holiday ornaments using recycled materials

Make your own holiday ornament.JPG

I always enjoy the challenge of creating something really lovely out of materials that have been discarded, neglected, thrown out or otherwise deemed unworthy. These holiday ornaments are fairly simple to make with materials you already have at home, and can be a fun family project, so put on the holiday music, heat up some hot cocoa and have some fun.
