BRISTOL — In a Friday night Division II high school football game featuring Otter Valley’s potent passing and the host Mount Abraham/Vergennes team’s bruising rushing, the Eagles’ ground-and-pound approach came out on top, 36-18.

Vergennes city manager will seek input on sidewalk's fate

Posted on September 13, 2018 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — After discussion at Tuesday’s Vergennes City Council meeting, council members decided the fate of about 1,000 feet of South Water Street sidewalk rests in the hands of new City Manager Matt Chabot.

At issue is whether the riverside stretch of sidewalk that runs south from the intersection of South Water and Roberts streets should be repaired or removed. Removing the sidewalk would save future maintenance costs. Chabot said if it were removed it would be sodded over and seeded, but no crosswalks are planned.

FERRISBURGH — The owner of Vergennes modular and mobile home dealership Town & Country Homes Inc. has a town permit and is seeking an Act 250 permit amendment that would allow him to move his sales and display office to Route 7 in Ferrisburgh, just north of Vergennes.

The 17-acre site on the highway’s east side that Town & Country owner Patrick Whitley is eyeing formerly housed a driving range and miniature golf course that was operated by late Ferrisburgh resident Bob McNary.

Ferrisburgh, ACSWMD to talk land

Posted on September 13, 2018 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



FERRISBURGH — The Ferrisburgh selectboard discussed last week a possible sale or lease of the town-owned 34.91-acre parcel at the junction of Routes 7 and 22A to the Addison County Solid Waste Management District (ACSWMD).

ACSWMD officials have said they might be interested in the prominent parcel outside of Vergennes as a recycling center/trash drop-off, in part to replace Vergennes recycling center, which will probably close at the end of 2018. That possible closure would not necessarily affect private trash and recycling haulers.

Andy Kirkaldy: Yes, that U.S. Open umpire was out of line

Posted on September 13, 2018 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



Kirkaldy, Andy ONLINE.jpg

Wow, that Naomi Osaka is some tennis player, huh? Strong with good court coverage, great groundstrokes, booming serves, and what a lot of poise under pressure against Madison Keys in the U.S. Open semifinal last week and then Serena Williams in Saturday’s final.

What a bright future. If she ever learns to take advantage of her height and quickness to develop a net game, Osaka could be the next great women’s tennis player, if she isn’t already.

And yet, sadly, that’s not what anybody is talking about. Thanks for nothing, Carlos Ramos.

By Andy Kirkaldy



FERRISBURGH — Ferrisburgh officials came away optimistic from an Aug. 29 meeting that the Vermont Agency of Transportation would take a serious look at a request from the town — and particularly North Ferrisburgh residents — for traffic signals at the intersection of Route 7 with Old Hollow and Stage Roads.

Selectboard members and residents alike agree that intersection, just south of Ferrisburgh’s border with Charlotte, is dangerous.
