By John Flowers



SALISBURY — Salisbury residents on Tuesday voted 92 to 61 against repealing a new firearms ordinance intended to promote safety in the most populous parts of town.

The new law, unanimously endorsed by the Salisbury selectboard back on April 26 — prohibits “the firing or discharge of a firearm … within a safety zone of 200 feet from any residence, building or camper in the High Density Residential/Village Center (HDR district), or the Lakeshore District Areas.”

SALISBURY — A new law endorsed by the Salisbury selectboard that aims to reduce the odds of accidental shootings in town has backfired in the opinion of some local residents.

They are seeking to repeal the ordinance through a townwide vote on Tuesday, July 19, because they believe the measure might restrict hunting within the community and perhaps even affect their right to own guns.

Thanks to some slightly larger-than-expected growth in the town’s grand list and some tight school budgets, residential property taxpayers will be assessed at a rate of $2.786 per $100 in property value, representing a 3.9-cent decrease from last year’s rate of $2.8251.

Taborri Bruhl run for Add 5 seat.JPG

NEW HAVEN — Taborri Bruhl had figured the highlight of his summer might be co-leading an educational trip to Spain with students from Rutland High School, where he teaches economics.

But a brief phone call from Addison County Democrats has shaken up his summer plans — and perhaps his professional life for years to come.

With a nudge from his party colleagues, Bruhl has decided to belatedly enter the race for the Addison-5 House seat that represents the towns of Bridport, New Haven and Weybridge. He will face veteran Rep. Harvey Smith, R-New Haven.

MIDDLEBURY — Some of the most beautiful flowers can bloom in the darkness.

Klara Calitri will show you.

Just give her some paint and a brush and her fragile, diminutive, 93-year-old hands will send water lilies floating across the canvass and help some scarlet geraniums stretching toward the sky. She’ll give them friends, such as a contemplative cat or some determined dragonflies.
