MIDDLEBURY — It’s often the comic relief segment in a TV wildlife documentary: Curious, affable bear pokes snout into honeycomb; long, pink tongue darts out to scarf up some honey; angry bees send the irrepressible fur ball lumbering back into the woods.

But in most cases, it’s not a laughing matter when a wild, hungry bear strays into civilization.

MONTPELIER — Addison County lawmakers generally gave good marks to a now-concluded 2013 legislative session that produced a General Fund budget of almost $1.4 billion that did not require the raising of new broad-based tax money, but did produce higher fees at the pump to leverage additional federal aid to repair the state’s roads, bridges and culverts.

MONTPELIER — Gov. Peter Shumlin on Thursday gave high marks to the 2013 General Assembly, a body that he said granted 90 percent of his education priorities and completed one of the most productive sessions “in years.”

ADDISON COUNTY — Cell phones can serve as a vital public safety link between a child and a parent.
