Mary Hogan Elementary budget includes new Spanish program

MIDDLEBURY — ID-4 school directors are seeking voter support for a 2016-2017 Mary Hogan Elementary School budget of $7,391,279, a plan that reflects a 9.08 percent increase in spending, but a much smaller 1.44 percent bump in the homestead education property tax rate.

And Middlebury school directors note that the overall education property tax rate for local students in grades pre-K through 12 is expected to decrease by 4.08 percent, due in part to a substantial increase in students that will in turn net the community more state assistance.

School board ballots expand in response to Act 46

Posted on January 14, 2016 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury-area voters will see a lot more names than usual on their Town Meeting Day ballots this year. That’s because the Addison Central Supervisory Union is pursuing a unified school district under Act 46, which means a brand new, 13-member school board will need to be elected. And that’s in addition to positions on the current elementary and UD-3 school boards that will have to be filled to ensure a smooth transition for the new panel.

LINCOLN — “We didn’t sleep very much,” says Mari Cordes of her recent week on the Greek island of Lesvos.

No, it was not a winter vacation in search of the sun. The Lincoln resident went to Greece to provide humanitarian and medical aid to refugees from Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere, who continue to arrive by the thousands, often on dangerously overcrowded inflatable dinghies, drenched and shivering as they flee their war-torn homelands.

“On an average day, there were thousands of refugees coming ashore,” said Cordes.

Painting and poetry shed light on forest work

By JULIA JOHN



KolbPainting3350.jpg

MIDDLEBURY — Lincoln artist Kathleen Kolb has been painting enchantingly radiant, realistic scenes of local forestry for two decades. Three summers ago, when Kolb shared her work with Vermont poet Verandah Porche, her longtime friend and former colleague at the Governor’s Institute on the Arts, the writer suggested they collaborate. So Porche spent last spring conversing and writing verses with foresters featured in Kolb’s paintings, complementing their visual depiction with words.

By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — Vermont Agency of Transportation officials planning the replacement of Middlebury’s two downtown rail bridges confirm that a related parking garage and the relocation of a public transit bus stop will be covered under the estimated $40 million project budget, but no funds are being earmarked for assisting local merchants who might lose business during construction.

State to consider scaling back Midd RR bridges plan

Posted on January 11, 2016 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — Vermont Transportation Secretary Chris Cole has asked the Vermont Rail Council to weigh in on the notion of lowering the minimum clearance requirement for Middlebury’s two downtown rail bridges from 21 feet to 19 feet.

It’s a move that — if approved by the Legislature — could substantially reduce the duration, cost and inconvenience of what is currently a $40 million plan to replace the spans during what could be a four-year work schedule.

The Addison County Regional Planning Commission member also considered a map produced by Green Mountain Power that shows power lines in the county are stretched thin by a number of solar arrays already here.

“So are you trying to tell me that we shouldn’t be seeing more heaps of these” applications, Kurrelmeyer asked two GMP officials who came to a planning commission meeting last Thursday to explain the map.
