By Andy Kirkaldy



FERRISBURGH — As higher profile and higher stakes talks have gone on between New Haven and the companies proposing a major new underground power line from New York state to New Haven, quieter negotiations have also been held in Ferrisburgh, another critical link in the planned 60-mile, $600 million project.

Massachusetts companies Anbaric Transmission and National Grid, the developers of the 400-megawatt Vermont Green Line, hope to bring hydro and wind power from upstate New York by cable under Lake Champlain and into the New England power grid via New Haven.

Years ago, long before the plan surfaced to replace 94 Main St. with new downtown Middlebury town offices and a new Creek Road gym and recreation center at a bargain basement price, I wrote a column here about my undying affection for the old municipal gym. In it, I concluded I at least wanted a souvenir brick from that battered old barn when it got torn down.

RIPTON — The Middlebury Union High School boys’ Nordic team last week claimed the Division II state championship in dominant fashion — with a two-day performance at the Rikert Nordic Center that probably would have been good enough to also win the D-I title.

The Tiger boys breezed to wins in all four D-II events, the 5-kilometer freestyle race and the freestyle relay on Tuesday, and the 5K classic-style race and classic relay on Thursday.

Posted on March 3, 2016 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — Addison Northwest Supervisory Union voters on Tuesday gave a $10,026,000 Vergennes Union High School budget proposal a narrow victory, 1,495-1,370. The budget calls for a 2.23 percent cut from current spending.

In percentage terms, the margin translates to a 52-48 percent decision in strong turnout in the five ANwSU communities. The presidential primary and the ANwSU unification vote (the measure passed; see story) helped bring voters to polling places, which exceeded 50 percent turnout in several towns.

VERGENNES — Residents in each of the five communities that make up Addison Northwest Supervisory Union on Tuesday approved by wide margins the plan to unify the district under the governance of one board, effective July 1, 2017.

That board will operate the four district schools under one budget.
