ANWSD community engagement Ben Huston cmk.jpg

VERGENNES — Did you know that in 1870 Addison had 10 schools and Ferrisburgh once had as many as 17 schools?

VERGENNES — Going to the movies is definitely different now than it used to be back in the time of Marilyn Monroe, Cary Grant and other classic Hollywood stars. Back when the red carpet was rolled out, the finest duds adored and, oh, the afterparties. Nowadays we plop on the couch, flip on Netflix and browse until we give up declaring there’s “nothing good to watch anymore.”

David Metzger agrees.
