VERGENNES — When the 87 members of the Vergennes Union High School Class of 2015 marched from opposite sides of the VUHS gym on June 12 and met in the middle before turning toward the stage, all, for the first time in the school’s 65-year history, wore blue.

In a vote organized by the VUHS administration, the class earlier this spring voted overwhelmingly to overturn the school’s tradition of white graduation robes for girls and blue robes for boys.

Andy Kirkaldy: Many thoughts on a crowded sports scene

Posted on June 18, 2015 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



So much sports news right now, so little time … some thoughts:

• Serena Williams just won her 20th Grand Slam tennis title, the 2015 French Open. Sister Venus Williams has won seven Grand Slam titles. They have teamed up for 14 Grand Slam women’s doubles titles.

How is this not a bigger story?

• Baseball this summer will be stress-free. The Red Sox stink.

And it starts with the bad pitching, which creates pressure on the hitters.

Vergennes considers slight rise in property tax rate

By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — Vergennes aldermen at their June 9 meeting reached consensus on a 75-cent municipal tax rate, a decision that, if made final by their June 30 deadline to set the city’s 2015-2016 budget and tax rate, would mean a 2.5-cent property tax increase.

Mayor Bill Benton said discussion focused more on what would be fair to ask of residents than on specifics of the draft budget presented by City Manager Mel Hawley.

This time, it came from the stick of Redhawk attacker Matt Palmer.

ANwSU voters support VUHS budget by 169-vote margin

Posted on June 11, 2015 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — Addison Northwest Supervisory Union residents on Tuesday backed the third Vergennes Union High School budget proposal put before them this spring — a $10,258,933 plan — by a margin of 814-645, or about 56-44 percent.

The VUHS board had cut a total $211,000 from the budget that was soundly defeated on Town Meeting Day, and it was $55,000 lower than the plan that lost by 46 votes on May 5. That May 5 vote was complicated by a second, more costly proposal on the same ballot, an addition board members later admitted was a mistake.

The native of Addison who grew up on her parents’ dairy farm recalled the first of what she said were many jobs centered on children.

“My first job was babysitting at the age of 12 for a teacher that had four boys, and I made 25 cents an hour,” said Douglas, who will wrap up a 42-year career at FCS on Tuesday.
