Students learn from surroundings

MONKTON — After tromping in shin-deep snow through some of the 11 eco-zones on the Willowell Foundation’s property off Stoney Meadow Lane in Monkton, we come to a clearing. I am sure I have stumbled upon some kind of Narnia, the fantasy land created by children’s author C.S. Lewis.

A large shelter insulated in old sails looms like a giant’s cave. The shelter’s frame is built of cedar beams the students harvested from the woods — without a single nail. The imposing structure will be replaced with a cabin this spring.

Posted on January 31, 2011 |
By Tamara Hilmes



BRISTOL — On Feb. 10, a public meeting will be held in Bristol to discuss the town’s application to the Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation for two variances concerning the operation of its Pine Street landfill.

According to Town Administrator Bill Bryant, the state has changed the way in which it interprets its regulations regarding the operations of municipal landfills. The new interpretation would require the town of Bristol to build enough money into the budget to cover closure fund obligations — an amount that nears $1 million, Bryant said.

Monday, Jan. 24, was the deadline for candidates for municipal and school offices to file their nomination papers to get on the March 1 Town Meeting Day ballot.

Alderwoman bows out; Addison races loom

By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — Few races for elective office in March are shaping up in the five-town Vergennes area, but the Little City will have one new alderman, while a persistent Addison critic of Addison Northwest Supervisory Union unification is seeking two seats on school boards, including on the one panel that would govern ANwSU if that measure is approved.

The new member of the Vergennes City Council will replace two-term incumbent Christine Collette, who opted to step down for what she called four good reasons — that’s the number of grandchildren she has.

MIDDLEBURY — Though Middlebury College’s month-long J-Term has a reputation for being a rather laid-back time of year, the students heading up the college’s Solar Decathlon team have been even busier than usual this January.

Just last week, several students made the trip down to Orlando, Fla., for a Solar Decathlon conference and to attend the International Builders’ Show. And on Tuesday, the team gathered to host a fund-raising event at the Middlebury night spot 51 Main.

Posted on January 27, 2011 |
By John Flowers

MIDDLEBURY — School directors in Middlebury have decided to delay the introduction of Spanish language teaching at Mary Hogan Elementary School for at least a year.
