Lawmakers get an earful from citizens on shoreline bill, soda taxes

Posted on April 4, 2013 |
By Xian Chiang-Waren



lunch9381.jpg

BRIDPORT — Lawmakers and several dozen Addison County citizens gathered at the Bridport Community Hall for a legislative lunch on agricultural issues, but the hot-button issues discussed over the meal were not directly related to agriculture.

Rather, citizens in attendance wanted to pick legislators’ brains over a controversial shoreline conservation bill, H.526, which netted statewide attention after clearing the House late last week, and over a tax package that would lift the tax exemption on items including bottled water, soda, candy and dietary supplements.

VERGENNES — It’s rare that scores of Mount Abraham students fill the bleachers of the Vergennes Union High School gym for something other than a basketball game.

But last Friday, hundreds of students from both high schools sat in the same set of bleachers in the VUHS gym to hear a presentation on substance abuse by motivational speaker Kevin Brooks, followed by student-led discussion forums. Meanwhile back in Bristol, students from the Vergennes and Mount Abraham middle schools gathered for workshops on bullying.

BRISTOL — The location may have been rural Vermont, but the ambiance was entirely French at the Mount Abraham Union High School cafeteria last Thursday. French music piped in through the speakers, crisp, white tablecloths dressed up the cafeteria, and students gathered to converse in French over a gourmet meal prepared by chef Bill Snell of New Haven’s Tourterelle restaurant.

LINCOLN — Renaissance Italy came to life last week at the Lincoln Community School with a performance of William Shakespeare’s “Much Ado About Nothing,” this year’s annual play put on by the school’s fifth- and sixth-grade students.

“It’s a really fun play,” said sixth-grader Lizzie Nault, shortly before the first performance on Wednesday. She played Hero, one of the play’s female protagonists.

Bristol plans public brainstorming session for ideas to fix firehouse limitations

Posted on March 21, 2013 |
By Xian Chiang-Waren



BRISTOL — The bond that would pave the way for a major upgrade to the Bristol Fire Department’s North Street facility may have gone up in smoke on Town Meeting Day with a 587-293 defeat, but the search for an improved firehouse continues.

Despite taxpayers’ sound rejection of the proposed North Street upgrade, town officials and members of the Fire Facility Committee said that they were encouraged by the public’s overwhelming support for improving the fire department’s headquarters, albeit in a different location.

Clippings by Xian: Students learn the play's the thing

Posted on March 21, 2013 |
By Xian Chiang-Waren



I have a confession to make: Despite growing up in a family of theater people, I never “got” Shakespeare. In fact, though I wouldn’t go so far as to say I hated Shakespeare, I pretty much had to be forced to pick up one of his plays. I was also almost always unmoved by the professional productions I saw growing up; “The Tempest,” “Macbeth,” “Hamlet” and “Midsummer” all had cool sets and costumes, but I still couldn’t understand what anyone was saying.

BRIDPORT — A wind turbine is up and running at the Audets’ Blue Spruce Farm in Bridport, the second in Addison County that was constructed especially for the Green Mountain Power’s Wind Power Program. The turbine, which sits atop a 121-foot-tall tower just off Route 22A, generates around 165,000 kilowatt hours of electricity per year, about enough to power 23 homes. It also will save around 191,807 lbs. of carbon emissions annually.

ADDISON COUNTY — Last year’s sugaring season was the shortest in recent memory. But this year, sugarmakers around Addison County say the season is at least getting off to a sweet start.

“I’m off to the best start I ever had,” said Mike Christian, of Village Sugarworks in Orwell. “I’ve been sugaring for the better part of 40 years, 10 years on my own, and this is the best I’ve ever seen.”

Middlebury student exhibits photo study of trash cans

MIDDLEBURY — It’s the rare individual that takes real notice of trash receptacles.

But after spending two years making 1,300 photographs of a dizzying variety of garbage containers, Middlebury College student Ryan Kim has developed a bona fide visual study of those objects — and found that the duality of practical function and aesthetic form in them makes them very interesting indeed.
