May eyed for Ferrisburgh garage

FERRISBURGH — Ferrisburgh road foreman John Bull now projects, after this winter’s harsh weather, that the town’s new highway garage will be ready in mid-May.

Residents approved in December of 2013 an $850,000 bond to pay for most of the $1.05 million, 5,940-square-foot, six-bay Ferrisburgh garage.

 Initially, plans called for a fall completion date, but after typical delays in design and construction, Bull said earlier this week it was best to slow things down during this past untypical winter.

BRISTOL — The Mount Abraham Union High School board has laid out a timeline and strategy to draft a new budget proposal that could gain voter approval.

Addison Northeast Supervisory Union voters on Town Meeting Day rejected, by a tally of 1,241 to 1,088, a proposed $14.06 million spending plan to operate the school next year. That sum was slightly lower than the figure voters approved for the current year.

Posted on March 26, 2015 |
By Addison Independent



BRANDON — The days are getting longer and warmer, the snow is melting and soon we will have April showers — all signs that spring is on the way.

Police shed light on Durst-Shulze link; Family releases statement

Posted on March 26, 2015 |

PressConference6388.jpg

MIDDLEBURY — News of the arrest on March 14 of New York City real estate scion Robert Durst on a first-degree murder charge is reverberating to Middlebury, where Durst owned and operated the now-defunct health food store “All Good Things” in the early 1970s.

Middlebury police said an unsolicited phone tip in 2012 about Durst’s past ownership of the store led them to consider his link to a Middlebury College student who disappeared in 1971 after having purchased some dried prunes at All Good Things.

Hundreds seek ouster of ANeSU superintendent

Posted on March 26, 2015 |
By Zach Despart



LincolnMeeting2346.jpg

LINCOLN — For 26 seconds, applause rocked the walls of Lincoln Community School’s tiny gymnasium Tuesday evening. The cause of the ovation was not, as one might suspect, a game-winning basket or conclusion of a musical performance.

Rather, a local resident asked her supervisory union board to fire the superintendent.

During visitors’ business of the Addison Northeast Supervisory Union board meeting, Koran Cousino of Starksboro presented a petition signed by hundreds of voters who support the dismissal of ANeSU Superintendent David Adams.
