BRISTOL — After Bristol Planning Commission Vice-Chair Chico Martin refused to accept public comments from long-time Bristol resident John “Slim” Pickens at last week’s planning meeting — an action that Secretary of State Jim Condos said potentially violated the state’s open meeting law — a small group of concerned citizens spoke out at Monday’s selectboard meeting.

Probe into city death to continue

Posted on November 23, 2011 |
By Wilson Ring (AP)



VERGENNES (AP) — The Vermont Attorney General’s office is trying to determine if a crime was committed when a woman attempting to rob a Vergennes convenience store in September died while she was held down by a store clerk. The state medical examiner late last week ruled the death of the woman a homicide.

On Friday, the state health department released the death certificate of Yemella Sprauve, who died Sept. 28 after she had been held down by the Champlain Farms clerk who took a knife away from her during an early morning struggle.

By Andrea Suozzo



HANCOCK — On Nov. 15, the town of Hancock took another step toward recovery from Tropical Storm Irene when it settled on a contractor to repair a damaged bridge on the lower section of Churchville Road.

Town officials and Phelps Engineering Inc., awarded the bid to Champlain Construction at a selectboard meeting that Tuesday, for a project total of $259,688.90. The town expects that the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) will pay a large portion of that cost, while the rest will come from the town’s road budget.

FERRISBURGH — Ferrisburgh selectmen and the contracted buyer of town-owned land earlier this month reached an agreement to extend for three months a key purchase contingency of the $375,000 contract.

The original terms of the Aug. 1 deal between the town and Montpelier’s Eastern Development Corp. for a 34.9-acre parcel at the junction of Routes 7 and 22A gave the buyer until Nov. 15 — this past Tuesday — to market its still-undisclosed plans for the property after the sale.

Thai-Restaurant.jpg

MIDDLEBURY — There are definite signs of life at the longtime restaurant space at 22 Merchants Row after more than a year-and-a-half of dormancy.

Those signs of life are evidenced by the sounds of hammers and skill saws being wielded by workers who are transforming the 2,343-square-foot space into a new Thai restaurant scheduled to open early next month.

It will be called “Sabai Sabai,” Thai words that translate to “comfortable,” noted Art Jilandharn, who with his wife, Claire, will operate the new restaurant.
