By KATHRYN FLAGG

Flu closes Shoreham school early

By JOHN FLOWERS
SHOREHAM — Students at Shoreham Elementary School got their summer vacation off to an early start this year — not to go out and enjoy good weather, but rather because a good number of kids were under the weather.

When around five students in the fifth-grade class exhibited flu-like symptoms on Thursday, June 11, school officials — in consultation with the Vermont Department of Health — decided to release that entire grade for summer vacation.

NEW HAVEN — “I’m a pack rat,” said Ralph Farnsworth, standing in the jam-packed old barn where his father once milked a herd of 10 cows. “I figure somebody’s got to have it, so it might as well be me.”

“It” is everything — or, to be more specific, “anything old,” as Farnsworth puts it.

The casual passer-by at Farnsworth’s North Street home in New Haven will notice a few signs of this fascination with the antique. Arranged neatly on the groomed lawn by his barn are a few old tractors, all in pristine condition.

By KATHRYN FLAGG
ADDISON COUNTY — Dairy farmers around the country are rallying behind a price stabilization program that some dairy farmers hope could help reduce volatility in bulk milk prices, which plummeted this winter to a low of roughly $10 per hundredweight, $7 or $8 below the cost of production for Vermont farmers.

But with milk prices projected to rebound somewhat this fall, advocates for the new program say farmers need to move fast before rising bulk prices dissuade some dairymen from pushing for change.
