Brandon Town Manager Keith Arlund said he was alerted on March 10 that a lateral sewer line to the building adjacent to the Rutland Northeast Supervisory Union offices was compromised after a clean-out box came apart.

COLCHESTER — For Meigan Clark of Middlebury, victory was “scurrilous” last Wednesday evening.

There was nothing “low” or “coarse” about the win, though — the sixth-grader at Mary Hogan Elementary edged past 41 other spellers to take the trophy in the Vermont state spelling bee. And she’ll go on to represent the state at the Scripps National Spelling Bee in Washington, D.C., this June.

BRISTOL — After two decades on the Vermont Agency of Transportation’s to-do list, VTrans officials are making serious moves to get the Route 116 “Stoplight Bridge” replacement project in Bristol off the ground.

Dealing with a wide range of obstacles over many years, the crew at VTrans finally has a concrete plan to remedy the temporary bridge that’s been in place for 11 years. VTrans engineer Martha Evans-Mongeon, who has been managing this project since 2003, told the Bristol selectboard last week that a new span could be in place by 2014.

ADDISON COUNTY — Winter in Vermont is unique. From the frequent snowstorms to the long days spent on the slopes, people travel from all over New England just to get a taste of the wonder that exists here in Vermont’s simple landscape.
