BRISTOL — For students in the Addison Northeast Supervisory Union, the day is hardly over when the afternoon bell rings. They’re not just participating in sports or getting some extra tutoring from a teacher; rather, in four of the five ANeSU elementary schools, students can be found learning everything from tai chi, to cooking, to making jewelry.

The workshops and classes are part of ANeSU’s Expanded Learning Program (ELP), a series of after-school experiential learning classes held in six-week sessions throughout the school year and the summer.

By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — For the third time since 2005, residents of the five communities that make up Addison Northwest Supervisory Union will decide on March 1 if one board, not the current five, should run their four schools.

A yes vote on March 1 (Town Meeting Day) in all five towns would create the Addison Northwest Unified School District and a 12-member board to operate it, effective July 1, 2017, after a year of planning during which the existing ANwSU boards would still call the shots.

By John Flowers



VERGENNES — State lawmakers and Gov. Peter Shumlin are trying to resolve a $68 million revenue shortfall in the fiscal year 2017 general fund budget. While state politicians agree on the magnitude of the financial problem, it’s clear that there is far from consensus on how to mop up the red ink.

Rep. Diane Lanpher, D-Vergennes, provided an update on the fiscal year 2017 budget at Monday’s legislative breakfast in Vergennes. Lanpher is a member of the House Appropriations Committee, which considers funding requests for state agencies and programs.

SALISBURY— For local fishermen, Valentine’s Day this weekend brought frigid temps, ice and for a lucky few, some big fish.

The Lake Dunmore Ice Fishing Derby, held on the frozen surface of Lake Dunmore, attracted 52 ice fishermen from around the region. Temperatures for the weekend were 6 to 17 degrees below zero, accompanied by a strong northerly wind that sent the wind chill index plummeting.

The fish didn’t seem to mind, however.

VERGENNES — Towns’ ownership of their schools and surrounding land has concerned residents each time Addison Northwest Supervisory Union has voted on unification, most recently in 2010, and the upcoming decision on March 1 is no exception.

In the past decade, a central question in some residents’ minds has been reluctance to allow control and ownership of their schools to be transferred to a single board with representatives from all five ANwSU towns, as will be the case in ANwSU if its member towns vote yes next month.
