Body of Burlington man discovered near Lewis Creek Fishing Access

By Addison Independent



FERRISBURGH — Vermont State Police on Thursday morning identified 56-year-old Peter J. Tolis of Burlington as the man found deceased in the water near the Lewis Creek Fishing Access off Long Point Road on Aug. 5.

VSP said the four-day delay in identifying Tolis was due to notification of next of kin. Police have ruled out foul play as the cause of death.

According to VSP, Tolis’ body was discovered by two kayakers at about 3 p.m. that Saturday afternoon. Rescue workers and an assistant medical examiner responded to the scene.

By Andy Kirkaldy



FERRISBURGH — Residents’ complaints about a dangerous intersection and speeding honey wagons on Tuesday prompted the Ferrisburgh selectboard to act in one case and promise to take action in the other.

The action on the dangerous intersection could potentially have a wider effect. Residents who live on Hollow, Stage and Long Point roads pressed the board to lobby the Agency of Transportation and the Addison County Regional Planning Commission (ACRPC) for a traffic light on Route 7.

FERRISBURGH — After the Vorsteveld Farm recently paid a contractor to cut more trees in the town right of way along Arnold Bay Road, an issue about which the farm and Ferrisburgh officials are already involved in a legal dispute, the Ferrisburgh selectboard on Tuesday promised upset neighbors it would take legal action.

After neighbors — and Selectboard Chairman Rick Ebel — said they were frustrated with the farmers’ actions, the board met with town attorney Jim Carroll behind closed doors for 20 minutes.

NEW HAVEN — The bleachers were almost full at the animal show arena at Addison County Fair & Field Days as several 4-H kids led their cows inside for conformation classes, angling for a wide range of possible awards.

Large as that audience may have been, the 4-H-ers were mostly aiming to impress the person whose opinion counted most: dairy judge Elizabeth Hall of East Montpelier.

Stunt biker wows Field Days crowd

NEW HAVEN — Robbie Pfunder is not a fan of flinching.

For the bike stuntman, who wowed a crowd of fairgoers at the Addison County Fair & Field Days last Tuesday, every inch, and every flinch, matters — especially when kids are involved.

By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — Vergennes officials remained optimistic about finding a new city manager after the city council on Tuesday met to conduct online interviews with candidates, but were reluctant to identify those candidates.

“Out of respect for our candidates we are unable to yet release names,” said Deputy Mayor Jeff Fritz, chairman of the committee charged with finding a replacement for retiring City Manager Mel Hawley.
