ADDISON COUNTY — The outbreak of highly pathogenic avian influenza in the Midwestern United States could have severe consequences for Vermont’s poultry producers. Although HPAI is not directly affecting Vermont at this time, the disease may begin to affect New England as early as fall of 2015, according to the Vermont Agency of Agriculture, Food and Markets.

This is of particular interest in Addison County, home to two of the largest poultry producers and one of the largest egg producers in the state, not to mention numerous backyard flocks.

MIDDLEBURY — Ask veteran Middlebury Union Middle School social studies educator Mary Goodale what got her interested in teaching, and she will give you, without hesitation, a very offbeat answer.

“Swimming,” she said with a grin during an interview last week about her decision to retire this month after more than three decades as a teacher.

New Music on the Point.png

SALISBURY — Contemporary music has always gotten a bad rap. Its discordant, atonal tones have often consigned contemporary music to the fringe. Today, New Music — the term for contemporary classical music composed in the 21st century — is a genre whose popularity and rapid growth are bringing it back from the fringe. Contrary to its perceived difficulty, this is music that you can identify, remember and enjoy.

ANwSU voters support VUHS budget by 169-vote margin

Posted on June 11, 2015 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — Addison Northwest Supervisory Union residents on Tuesday backed the third Vergennes Union High School budget proposal put before them this spring — a $10,258,933 plan — by a margin of 814-645, or about 56-44 percent.

The VUHS board had cut a total $211,000 from the budget that was soundly defeated on Town Meeting Day, and it was $55,000 lower than the plan that lost by 46 votes on May 5. That May 5 vote was complicated by a second, more costly proposal on the same ballot, an addition board members later admitted was a mistake.

BeefSupply2692.jpg

MIDDLEBURY — Stationed on the roof of the Middlebury Beef Supply in East Middlebury, a lone bovine figure kept a watchful eye over the parking lot and the passing traffic on Route 7. For more than 50 years, the bull remained at its post — that is, until last week.

With the help of some Middlebury College alumni, “Ferdinand,” as the bull is known, finally completed a trip to the interior of Forest Hall on the college campus, a mission five decades in the making.

BRANDON — Otter Valley Union High School just said “no” to bullying.

A controversial smartphone application used by students to bully others that was taken down in Rutland High School last December appeared at OV last week and met the same fate.

OV Principal Jim Avery said on Saturday that the presence of the After School app was brought to his attention on Monday, June 1, when two students met him that morning and told him about it. By Thursday, the entire school had mobilized against the app, its users and their bullying tactics.
