VERGENNES — City council members heard from Alderman Mark Koenig at a Jan. 24 meeting that the council’s Pedestrian Task Force, charged with making recommendations to the council for improved downtown pedestrian and biking safety, would be meeting on Feb. 1. In the meantime, City Manger Mel Hawley said Koenig has installed homemade pedestrian flags at five crosswalks and that they are being used: In some cases he sees all the flags on one side of the road.

“Maybe we need more of them,” Hawley said.

Girls' hoops: Tigers shut down Commodores

MIDDLEBURY — The host Middlebury Union High School girls’ basketball team pulled away in Saturday’s fourth quarter to defeat Vergennes, 49-24.

The victory, the Tigers’ fifth in six tries, moved them to 7-3. It was the product of a strong team defense, as the Tigers forced 32 turnovers, and balanced scoring, as six Tigers tallied between four and 13 points.

Senior forward and tri-captain Ally Larocque (seven points and a team-high seven rebounds vs. VUHS), said they enjoyed Saturday, and their season has been satisfying.

BRISTOL — After six fourth-quarter lead changes and six straight missed Middlebury Union High School free throws in the final minute that allowed the host Mount Abraham boys’ basketball team to claw back to within one point, Friday’s game came down to a final play at the horn.

The Tigers, at 0-11 against a brutal schedule, needed a stop to hold their 55-54 lead. The Eagles, losers of four straight, two in heartbreaking fashion, had 7.4 seconds to score after a midcourt timeout taken.

Ferrisburgh's municipal budget won't trigger tax hike

Posted on January 26, 2017 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



FERRISBURGH — The Ferrisburgh selectboard adopted a budget on Tuesday that if approved by residents on Town Meeting Day would barely move the town’s municipal tax rate, effectively cut the hours of the elected treasurer position from 35 to 20 per week, and allow the board to hire an extra part-time worker for the town office.

Board members also adopted a Town Meeting Day warning that will ask residents to make three other decisions: whether to buy a $190,000 truck, to change property tax payments to a quarterly schedule, and to create a $500 Conservation Fund.

Ferrisburgh board planning to cut treasurer hours

Posted on January 23, 2017 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



FERRISBURGH — The Ferrisburgh selectboard is moving toward cutting hours for the position of town treasurer as it prepares its 2017-2018 budget, the latest sign of its discontent with the work of town’s elected incumbent treasurer.

The board also on Jan. 17 discussed with its auditor what he called accounting deficiencies, and changed the town’s credit card policy to give the board, not the treasurer, the authority to issue or cancel town credit cards or make changes on cards being used by cardholders.

Boys' Hoop: Despite Commodore surge, Otter Valley pulls off win

s Bball5011.jpg

BRANDON — The Otter Valley Union High School boys’ basketball team used a balanced attack to control most of its Friday game vs. visiting Vergennes, but had to hold off a late Commodore surge before prevailing, 74-69.

Four Otters reached double figures — senior guard Derek Aines and junior guard Josh Letourneau led with 19 points apiece, senior guard Dylan Mackie chipped in 13, and sophomore forward Tyler Rowe added 10 — as OV never trailed after an Aines jumper made it 4-3 three minutes into the game.

Posted on January 19, 2017 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



n1 Daniels (Mike) to run for Mayor.jpg

VERGENNES — Vergennes residents will have a choice on Town Meeting Day between an incumbent mayor who recently announced he will seek a third — and he says final — term, and a former mayor who served three terms between 2007 and 2013 and became mayor by unseating an incumbent.

Mike Daniels, 69, who has also served five years in two separate stints on the Vergennes City Council, the second of which ended this past March, said late this summer he began to get the itch to return to city politics.
