Trek.jpg

RIPTON — Students at many area schools go on field trips, but one recent excursion could be categorized as epic.

With temperatures well below freezing and over a foot of freshly fallen mid-winter snow, the entire student body of the North Branch School in Ripton last month made a two-day, 20-mile journey following trail networks through scenic and challenging terrain in Addison County.

By Addison Independent



RIPTON — Ripton residents at their town meeting re-elected Selectman Ronald Wimett in the lone contested race on the ballot and approved all of the money items they were presented.

Wimett won election to a three-year term over challenger Perry Hanson by a 64 to 49 tally.

Residents passed fiscal year 2016 budgets of $294,100 and $282,900, respectively, for highway and general services.

Also endorsed were articles asking that the town clerk and treasurer’s positions be elected on an annual basis, beginning on March 1, 2016.

RIPTON — Ripton residents on Tuesday, March 3, will decide a two-person race for a three-year term on the selectboard in what otherwise promises to be a low-key Town Meeting Day for the community.

The race involves incumbent Selectman Ronald Wimett, who faces a challenge from resident Perry Hanson. This is the second year in a row that Hanson will be trying to unseat an incumbent on the board. Last year, Selectwoman Laureen Cox bested Hanson by a 91-40 tally.

Hoyler fondly recalled as new Ripton clerk sought

Posted on January 22, 2015 |
By John Flowers



RIPTON — The Ripton selectboard next week will decide how the community will fill its town clerk and treasurer positions following the tragic death of Sally Hoyler, who had held those posts for the past decade.

Hoyler, 59, had reported not feeling well last fall and visited a physician’s office just prior to Thanksgiving. That visit and subsequent hospital tests yielded the bad news: Hoyler had an advanced form of cancer. She understandably took leave of her town clerk/treasurer responsibilities but gave as much help as she could from home.

Jessie Raymond: January 1 is a bad time for resolutions

Posted on January 14, 2015 |
By Jessie Raymond



New Year’s resolutions. Are they still a thing?

I don’t mean are they still an annual cultural ritual. I mean are they still a thing by Jan. 15? I think I missed the open enrollment period.

Not that I really care. Sure, I might have felt like making a few resolutions on New Year’s Eve as the ball dropped, but I had already been asleep for over two hours at that point. Perhaps “Stay up until past midnight at least once during 2015” should have been my first resolution. (Let’s say past 10 p.m., just to keep things realistic.)
