klopfenstein, joe.jpg

VERGENNES — Vergennes alderman and well-known area large-animal veterinarian Joe Klopfenstein will later this fall pull up his Vermont stakes after 30 years and leave for a teaching job with Oregon State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine.

Klopfenstein, as much a fixture on the Vergennes musical scene as on the 33 dairy farms he serves with his veterinary partner, Annie Murphy, said he was made an offer that was too good to refuse — in part because he and his wife Nancy’s two sons both live in Oregon.

FERRISBURGH — This year’s Ferrisburgh Day, which will arrive on the afternoon of Saturday, Sept. 12, will be doing double duty.

Not only will Ferrisburgh Day give residents of the northwest Addison County town a chance to gather and get to know each other better, it will also serve as the official unveiling of the town’s new $1.05 million, 5,940-square-foot, six-bay highway garage. That building was built next to the former town garage, on Little Chicago Road across from Ferrisburgh Central School.

MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury Union High School football coach Dennis Smith often says a win is a win.

After his Tigers emerged from Friday’s night’s opener on Doc Collins Field with a 21-13 victory in a game with a combined four interceptions and seven fumbles and saw his team have three touchdowns called back due to penalties — but still make a number of big plays — that phrase came to mind.

Posted on August 20, 2015 |

FERRISBURGH — Although there is still time for a negotiated solution, the Ferrisburgh farmer who upset his lakefront neighbors a year ago by firing a propane cannon to protect his sweet corn crop said this week he is prepared to use the cannon again as soon as next week.

Wayne Stearns, owner of Crazy Acres Farm on Schoolhouse Road, said if the flock of starlings that lives on his farm starts attacking his corn, he is considering deploying a cannon that in 2014 fired thousands of times a day for about a month.

Tigers quickly lose, then gain, a boys' soccer coach

soccerpractice9372.jpg

MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury Union High School activities director Sean Farrell said he had a transition plan in place for the school’s boys’ soccer program: Coach Bret Weekes would complete his third year leading the program, while MUHS math teacher Reeves Livesay would assist this year and then take over for Weekes in 2016.

That plan went by the boards when life threw a curveball at Weekes earlier this month: An illness that struck a family member living in Utah prompted a family decision to move back to that state to help provide long-term care and support.
