FERRISBURGH — Vergennes Police Chief George Merkel and City Manager Matt Chabot made a pitch to the Ferrisburgh selectboard on Tuesday that the town should contract with the city police department, not the Addison County Sheriff’s Department, for its annual traffic enforcement needs.

BRISTOL — It wasn’t as easy as anyone expected when the Mount Abraham Union High School girls’ basketball team hosted 4-14 Colchester on Tuesday, but the 17-2 Eagles eventually pulled away late for their 17th straight victory, 32-24.

The defending Division II champion Eagles have officially clinched the top tournament seed for the second straight year. The Vermont Principals’ Association will make it official on Monday morning, but second-place Lake Region (15-3) cannot overcome a 13-point deficit in the VPA standings in its two games.

Middlebury’s 85-76 NESCAC quarterfinal loss to No. 8 Tufts also casts doubt on whether the 18-7 Panthers will receive an NCAA Division III tournament bid when the field is set on Monday.

By Andy Kirkaldy



PANTON — Panton residents face a March 5 choice about their town hall, one that is embedded within the proposed town budget.

The budget, which for the first time ever cannot be amended from the floor of Panton Town Meeting, includes a line item for an annual $4,140 payment for an aluminum cupola, not a more expensive wooden cupola that some residents have favored at past town meetings.

The budget also cuts last year’s $38,775 line item for the Town Hall Restoration Fund back to $15,000.
