Posted on April 3, 2017 |
By Gaen Murphree



ADDISON COUNTY — The developers of the proposed Vermont Green Line that could bring millions of dollars to Addison County towns that host the electric power transmission line say the project is still moving forward despite loosing its principal customer.

National Grid and Anbaric Transmission, the VGL development partners, last fall failed to win their bid to sell renewable power to Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island.

But they are now looking “upstream,” National Grid’s Joe Rossignoli told the Independent recently.

Van Wyck alone in rejecting proposed state budget

Posted on April 3, 2017 |
By Elizabeth Hewitt VTDigger.org



MONTPELIER — Ferrisburgh state Rep. Warren Van Wyck was the only lawmaker voting nay when the Vermont House of Representatives advanced a $5.8 billion state budget package this past Thursday.

It was a rare moment of tripartisan financial unity as the House OK’d the state finance plan for the next fiscal year, which does not raise any new taxes or fees.

The budget gained preliminary approval on a vote of 143 in favor, one opposed. It was expected to pass by a similar margin when the House gave its final approval Friday.

SHOREHAM — Abby Goodrich and Joe Murphy grew up one town away from each other. She in Shoreham, he in Orwell. Abby’s mother, Leslie Goodrich, was Joe’s teacher in elementary school.

But despite their proximity, Abby and Joe never knew each other growing up. Kids from Shoreham travel to Middlebury for middle school and high school, those from Orwell go to Fair Haven.

Instead, the two met years later at a wedding.

Abby had been hired as a wedding photographer for the event. Joe was the best man.

Late winter pruning: The perfect antidote for cabin fever

n Late Winter pruning LEAD D71-711902.jpg

Late winter is cabin fever season; after months of indoor living we find ourselves yearning for spring, and we can surely be forgiven for grumbling about Vermont’s recent March blizzard.

Wikipedia describes cabin fever as “a claustrophobic reaction from being confined in a small space for an extended period of time, resulting in extreme irritability and restlessness, often accompanied by an urge to go outside, even in rain, snow, dark or hail.” I certainly understand the urge to get outdoors, but I prefer to skip the rain, dark and hail.
