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.

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.”

FERRISBURGH — A couple months back volunteers at Ferrisburgh’s Rokeby Museum were going through the historic landmark’s outbuildings, evaluating them for possible conservation work or repairs, when they made a discovery — a small, painted wooden boat, just short of six feet long and in rough shape.

Farms & fans help Bristol musician release her first album

Helen Hummel lead.jpg

Farm-to-table is a common phrase that most of us are used to these days, but how about farm-to-musician? Not so much.

It isn’t every day you meet a rising singer/songwriter who got her start by swapping hard labor on farms for voice lessons and recording studio time. But that’s exactly what Helen Hummel did.

It all started in high school and college — an awkward and “roughly silent time” for Hummel.
