Letter to the editor: Middlebury wild worth preserving

Posted on June 14, 2018 |
By Jennifer Stefani



This past week I went for a group hike at Wright Park; it was a mixer for the Addison Chamber of Commerce. The walk was hosted and led by Jamie Montague of the Middlebury Area Land Trust, and nature educator Mo Bisonette.

Wearing my office clothes and hiking boots and munching on new-growth hemlock needles (they are full of vitamins!), I realized once again that one of the most precious things about Middlebury is the proximity of wild plants and animals, trees, and the river, to areas of town where people gather to do business and socialize.

ACSD busing expenses to skyrocket next year

Posted on June 11, 2018 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — Addison Central School District officials will need to do some creative accounting to mitigate the financial impacts of a new, three-year busing contract that will result in a 41.5-percent hike (approximately $400,000) in transportation costs next school year compared to the current pact that expires on June 30.

In years two and three of the contract, the rate will increase by 2.5 percent over the previous year. So in FY2019-2020 the contracted amount will increase to $1,139,369, and in FY2020-2021, the amount will increase to $1,167,853.

GaneatBixby0251.jpg

VERGENNES — Many things have changed during Addison resident Jane Spencer’s seven-year tenure at the Bixby Memorial Library, which will conclude on June 29.

But it’s probably safe to put technology at the top of the list now that the historic Vergennes library offers a half-dozen patron computers, a strong Wi-Fi signal, e-books and e-magazines, new computer bars, and, soon, a remote printing station.
