VERGENNES — A connection made after one of the worst March snowstorms in Vermont history is the key to a Northlands Job Corps student project that is sending aid to Japan after one the worst natural disasters in its history.

A Northlands club that goes by the name Ladies of Success — it is essentially a mutual-support and social-activity group for a small number of female students on the Vergennes campus  — spearheaded a campus-wide student effort to make more than 1,000 paper origami cranes.

VERGENNES — Vergennes aldermen at their April 12 meeting said they would like to retain the better of two building sites on a city-owned 8.13-acre parcel off New Haven Road as a possible future home for a new police station.

The Boys & Girls Club of Greater Vergennes has also been interested in the parcel, which was owned by the Vergennes ID school district and deeded to the city in 2010 when the ID board was dissolved per a citywide vote.

By Andy Kirkaldy



 

VERGENNES — Despite a winter that challenged the Vergennes Public Works Department and increased demand for the services of the Vergennes Police Department, the city’s budget appears to be on track as the June 30 end of the fiscal year approaches.

City Manager Mel Hawley said in an interview last Thursday that a combination of belt-tightening and better-than-expected revenue streams put the city’s finances in a better position than he had hoped even a few short weeks before.

Addison to revote on board unification

Posted on March 31, 2011 |

VERGENNES — Addison residents will be joining Vergennes citizens in voting for a second time this year on proposed one-board governance for the Addison Northwest Supervisory Union.

Residents in both those communities on Town Meeting Day backed a proposal for one board to own and operate the four ANwSU schools, but now will reconsider that support in a second vote.

If the Unified Union (UU) proposal survives both upcoming revotes, it would be the first significant consolidation move in Vermont.

VERGENNES — Like many 15-year-olds, Vergennes Union High School sophomore Kaitlin Leroux-Eastman listens to hip-hop, loves to hang around with her buddies, and enjoys the Twilight book series.

But probably not too many of the Vergennes resident’s peers match her nearly 200 hours of community service in the past year, conduct a church choir, and already have mapped out their college choice — St. Michael’s — and career plans — teaching music or French.
