Witherell joins Shoreham board

Posted on August 22, 2011 |
By John Flowers



SHOREHAM — The Shoreham selectboard has selected longtime resident and former orchardist Sanford Witherell to join its ranks until the March elections. Witherell fills a spot recently vacated by Selectwoman Marthe Fisher, who stepped down on July 15 amid increasing professional and family commitments.

Witherell and his family owned and operated the Noggin Orchard in Shoreham until around two years ago, when Champlain Orchards acquired the property.

Shoreham family rallies for education in D.C.

By Ian Trombulak



SHOREHAM — Moved by the release this spring of statistics that said 72 percent of Vermont schools — including 13 of 25 schools in Addison County and Brandon — failed to make enough government-mandated progress, several local people traveled to Washington, D.C., on July 28 to attend the Save Our Schools March and National Call to Action. The event was organized in opposition to the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001, known as NCLB.

Shoreham bridge repairs to detour Route 74 traffic

Posted on August 1, 2011 |
By John Flowers

SHOREHAM — The Vermont Agency of Transportation will soon solicit bids for replacement of the concrete deck on the bridge that spans the Lemon Fair River on Route 74 in Shoreham, a project that’s expected to last more than a month and create some traveling headaches for commuters and businesses.

The 182-foot-long bridge was built in 1939. The concrete piers and deck have show growing signs of wear and tear in recent years, culminating this past winter in a large hole that appeared near the middle of one of the travel lanes.

Ft. Ti ferry is back on the water

SHOREHAM — The Fort Ticonderoga Ferry has finally started its 2011 season after a seven-week, flood-related delay that has taken a financial toll on the system’s owners.

“Things seem to be going better right now,” said Alison Matot, who co-owns the ferry with her husband, Michael. The historic cable-drawn ferry links Shoreham with Ticonderoga, N.Y., across Lake Champlain. Were this a “normal” year, the Matots would have been able to fire up the ferry back in late April.

Shoreham makes fund-raising goal for library project

Posted on March 7, 2011 |
By John Flowers



 

SHOREHAM — Town meeting in Shoreham brought some kind tidings to boosters of the Platt Memorial Library.

In a rather spontaneous showing of generosity, townspeople at their annual gathering agreed to transfer $90,000 in Newton Academy fire insurance money to an expansion/renovation plan for the library that has set on the Shoreham green for more than 100 years.

That action, supported by voice vote, could allow for construction on the 1,600-square-foot addition to begin as soon as this fall, according to library trustees.

SHOREHAM — Shoreham Inn co-owners Molly and Dominic Francis were the big “winners” in a pig kissing contest that raised more than $6,000 for the town’s Platt Memorial Library.

The “Pig Kissin’” competition saw seven local celebrities vie for the dubious honor of kissing a piglet, aka Runty the Porker, at a public gathering last Saturday. Voters cast their ballots with dollar bills, with the largest sum sealing the victory with a kiss for Runty.

Shoreham takes aim at business growth

Posted on February 24, 2011 |
By John Roberts



 

SHOREHAM — With its quaint town park, venerable historic buildings and sprawling farmland, it is easy to stereotype Shoreham as an idyllic rural hamlet.

But that Rockwellian portrait belies a growing business community that is organizing itself to give Shoreham the added reputation as a destination for goods and services.

The Shoreham Economic Development Committee (SEDC) hosted its first Business-to-Business meeting late last month, an event that drew more than two dozen local vendors and entrepreneurs.

Shoreham youth back from epic sea voyage

SHOREHAM — It’s understandable if Shoreham’s Nick Balfour is having a tougher time than usual adjusting to the spate of cold, snowy weather in Vermont this winter.

That’s because only a short time ago, the 22-year-old was among a group of 27 college students sailing the balmy equatorial Pacific on a six-week-long scientific odyssey during which, among other things, they gained a better understanding of the effects of climate change on vital marine nutrients.
