LINCOLN — When the people of Zeno Mountain Farm get together each summer, it’s more like a family reunion than a summer camp, according to Peter and Ila Halby, the husband and wife team who are its directors.

The Lincoln nonprofit is the newest incarnation of a series of multi-age summer camps originally founded as “Camp Jabberwocky” on Martha’s Vineyard in 1953. Like its predecessors, Zeno Mountain Farm has the uncommon mission of hosting a mix of people with and without developmental and physical disabilities. The goal is to create and sustain a unique community.

BRISTOL — The Addison County Legion baseball team made a strong statement in defense of its 2008 title with a series of decisive wins during the past few days, beginning with a double-header sweep of the South Burlington Knights on Saturday and 20-2 drubbing of Franklin County on Monday.

Former Vergennes Union High School pitching star Corey Haight got the local nine off to a promising start in the first of Saturday’s twin-bill at the Mount Abraham Union High School field, striking out nine in four-and-one-third innings in a 9-3 victory over South Burlington.

East Middlebury church on the mend

By JOHN FLOWERS
EAST MIDDLEBURY — When Irene Piper was a child, you knew there was a crisis in the community when someone rang the bell in the East Middlebury United Methodist Church (UMC). Citizens would converge on the 1849 worship hall, discuss the problem at hand, and work together to solve it.

“The church was the center of the community,” said Piper, now 68.

Heavy rains hurt county farmers

By KATHRYN FLAGG
ADDISON COUNTY — Rain, rain, go away.

That’s the refrain taken up this summer by farmers and gardeners around the county, as heavier than normal rainfall in June drowned out some efforts at summer planting and harvesting.

The National Weather Service in Burlington tallied 5.25 inches of precipitation last month — nearly 2 inches more than the normal June rainfall, said meteorologist Jessica Neiles.

Invasive plant causes burns, blisters

ADDISON COUNTY — Michael O’Neill had a run-in with a colorful but noxious weed last summer when he saw the plant and, out of curiosity, smelled and touched its tall, green stems and yellow blossoms. Unfortunately, the Shoreham man suffered an adverse reaction — itching and mildly blistering skin — but it was not bad enough for him to seek medical help for the condition.

Earlier this summer, however, O’Neill accidentally brushed his hand across one of the plants and this time suffered severe blistering.

VERGENNES — Mirrors cropping up this month in local Vergennes businesses are reflecting well on the Little City’s record of public service.

This spring, local artists decorated 47 of these mirrors as part of a fund-raiser for the Vergennes Lions Club. Pieces in the project, entitled “Reflections on Vergennes,” will be on display all over town until July 18, when they will be auctioned off in a silent auction to benefit Lions Club community projects, including efforts to help with vision and hearing disabilities.

Organic milk boom slows down

By KATHRYN FLAGG
ADDISON COUNTY — Bridport farmer Jon Rutter was getting by — but just barely -— as a conventional dairy farmer.

“Economically, we were just treading water, if not drowning, under the conventional market,” Rutter said, looking back.

That’s when Rutter became a convert — that is to say, when he made the choice to go organic. That was back in 2001. Now, Rutter milks around 270 cows on his Bridport spread.

Middlebury tax rate jumps 3.3 percent

By JOHN FLOWERS
MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury selectmen on Monday approved a fiscal year 2010 residential property tax rate of $2.4627 per $100 in property value, amounting to a 7.8-cent increase compared to the current rate of $2.3840 — an increase of about 3.3 percent.

Approximately 7.7 cents of the increase is a result of public school-related expenses.

The new rate translates into a property tax bill of $4,925 for a homestead (house and two acres) valued at $200,000, according to Middlebury Assistant Town Manager Joe Colangelo.

Stimulus funds aim to boost homeownership

By KATHRYN FLAGG
ADDISON COUNTY — An influx of economic stimulus funding from Washington, D.C., could mean good news for hundreds of Vermonters struggling to buy or keep their homes.

That news came last week, when Vermont’s Congressional delegation announced that three Vermont nonprofit organizations — including one that serves Addison County — will divvy up $6 million to spur community development.
