Progress made on Midd. RR bridges: VTrans offers new specifics on project

Posted on January 11, 2016 |
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.

ADDISON COUNTY — Ellen Kurrelmeyer looked warily at a stack of applications for new solar power development in Addison County. 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.

MIDDLEBURY — Pierre Vachon loves bad movies. The body piercer, professional wrestler, voice-over artist and actor enjoys everything from their cringe-worthy acting to overdone special effects to lame story line. But most of all, he enjoys laughing at them.

“I love film train wrecks,” said Vachon, whose day job is at Frog Alley Tattoo and Leatherworks in Middlebury. “Because people actually went into it thinking they were making something good. It’s so bad I have to figure out where they went wrong.”

NEW HAVEN — The Public Service Board on Tuesday will hear from both the town of New Haven and Green Mountain Power, as to whether local power distribution lines are adequate to handle a 350 kW solar array proposed to be built next to the Vermont State Police barracks in New Haven.

The proposed solar array, called SSE New Haven Solar II, would be built next to a 150 kW solar array already in operation in the same location. The developer applied for permission to build the new array in March 2015.

VUHS board gets a look at challenging budget

Posted on January 7, 2016 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — The Vergennes Union High School board on Monday looked at a $10.3 million budget proposal for next year that, despite a proposed spending increase of only $37,000, could increase the VUHS tax rate by about 20 percent.

That is, it could see the rate increase unless the Legislature acts to remove or delay the Act 46 spending penalty.

This coming Monday, the board will look again at a budget that could call for cuts. The meeting will be at 6 p.m. at VUHS.

NEW HAVEN — Under amicable circumstances, 7-year-old Vincent acts more like a  teddy bear than an imposing 70-pound police dog. He leans against you for more pats and gives you a syrupy stare that he hopes will convince you to toss a ball for him. He’s a mixture of Winnie the Pooh and Fred Rogers.

By JULIA JOHN



MattDickerson0094.jpg

We tend to think of deserts as bleak, inhospitable expanses of parched sand beneath a sweltering sun. Matthew Dickerson’s latest book, “Trout in the Desert: On Fly Fishing, Human Habits, and the Cold Waters of the Arid Southwest,” however, tells the intriguing story of cold-water fish in streams that animate this landscape.
