Ayer travels to Taiwan on behalf of region

By John Flowers



WEYBRIDGE — State Sen. Claire Ayer has grown accustomed to traveling throughout the Green Mountain State in representing the interests of Addison County and Brandon.

But the four-term Democrat’s customary travels, usually from her home in Weybridge to the Statehouse in Montpelier, recently ramped up to some veritable globetrotting.

Ayer returned on Monday from a weeklong visit to Taiwan, as co-leader of a 10-person delegation made up of legislators from four New England states: Vermont, Massachusetts, Maine and New Hampshire.

LEICESTER — Even hundreds of feet from the Moore family’s Leicester home, fragrance hangs in the air. Step inside the house, and the scent is even stronger: lemongrass, pine, cinnamon, lavender and peppermint, and a background bouquet that’s best described as clean.

And although a visitor is immediately struck by the strong smells, no one in the family notices the scent.

“We don’t even smell it anymore,” said Linda Moore, mother of the clan.

Vergennes looks at drug paraphernalia law

Posted on December 16, 2010 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — Vergennes aldermen on Tuesday tabled until at least their next meeting a proposal to create a city law that would allow Vergennes police to issue city tickets for possession of drug paraphernalia.

Mayor Michael Daniels said there were enough questions from city council members that they decided to wait until Vergennes Police Chief George Merkel could attend a meeting in person to make the case for an ordinance he is proposing.

City 'Laundry' bakes up brick oven cuisine

VERGENNES — Near the back of Vergennes Laundry, the brushed metal walls of the industrial oven flickered orange with the light from the fire inside.

The bakery, which opened on Main Street this month, is full of eclectic combinations — the traditional, two-hearth brick oven with a sleek modern finish is a start. But even more noticeable upon entering the bright, airy space are the two fur-draped folding lawn chairs and the wall-mounted antique caribou head.

“Its name is Benjamin,” said owner Julianne Jones last Thursday evening. “He’s pretty friendly.”

United Way making headway in fund drive

Posted on December 13, 2010 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — United Way of Addison County has reached 60 percent of its $775,000 goal in its 2010-2011 fund drive, nicely ahead of last year’s pace as the campaign enters the critical holiday giving season, officials said on Thursday.

It was in September that local United Way launched its annual fund drive to aid the county’s many nonprofit human service agencies. Organizers set the same goal as last year — a threshold of $775,000 that the United Way fell $40,000 short of realizing for 2009, in large part due to the sluggish economy.

BRISTOL — Amidst filling out college applications, going on campus visits and completing routine homework assignments, Mount Abraham Union High School senior Rosie Nelson also finds time each week to Skype with the students and faculty of the New Life School in Ghana.

Nelson, 18, on her second trip to Ghana, volunteered at the school for 11 weeks this past summer, during which time she and her 22-year-old German roommate Christina Rohmann worked together to eliminate the practice of caning from the school’s bylaws after witnessing it firsthand.

ADDISON COUNTY — In today’s international food system, a consumer can get a pound of bananas grown in the tropics at any grocery store for under a dollar. But a local potato? That’s something the average consumer has to do a little work to find.
