MIDDLEBURY — Dr. Michael Kiernan recently took a break from his regular job treating patients at Middlebury’s Porter Hospital to work 20-hour shifts treating even more patients in earthquake-ravaged Haiti.

It was an experience he wouldn’t trade for anything.

“This was the trip of a lifetime,” Kiernan said on Thursday as he transitioned back into his duties in Porter’s emergency room after having spent 13 hectic-but-fulfilling days caring for scores of severely injured patients at a medical center in Milot, Haiti.

BRISTOL — A Bristol police officer will not face criminal charges for handcuffing a prisoner to a wall outside of a South Burlington jail last month.

The announcement came last Wednesday, when Chittenden County State’s Attorney T.J. Donovan said the Bristol police department’s actions in the case were “unacceptable,” but that there was insufficient evidence to bring charges in the case.

Sugarmakers consider new 'check valve' technology

Posted on March 8, 2010 |
By Kathryn Flagg



ADDISON COUNTY — At sugarbushes around the county, many veteran sugarmakers have kicked into high gear for the season.

And, although cold temperatures in the mountains meant sugaring operations in Starksboro, Lincoln and Bristol were still on hold early last week, the sap was running in the valley at Andy Hutchison’s Mt. Pleasant Sugarworks in Leicester.

Hutchison has 3,000 trees tapped this year. Like many other area sugarmakers, he’s testing the new plastic “check valves” that could potentially boost production at his sugarbush.

As of June 2011, the existing Vergennes Union High and Elementary school boards, Ferrisburgh and Addison Central school boards, and ANwSU board will dissolve and the union will assume ownership of all four schools.

Bristol rejects new plan, zoning ordinance

Posted on March 4, 2010 |
By Kathryn Flagg



web_tmbrwells.jpg

BRISTOL — By a nearly two-to-one margin, Bristol residents this week sent a crystal clear message to the town’s planning commission: It’s time to head back to the drawing board when it comes to the contentious town plan and gravel extraction zoning ordinance.

That message had been broadcast by a few vocal town residents at a series of public meetings and hearings over the past year, but those opponents were joined on Tuesday at the polls by hundreds of supporters. The town plan fell, 364 for to 598 against, and the extraction ordinance toppled in a 349 to 627 vote.
