MONTPELIER — The Vermont Economic Development Authority (VEDA) has promoted Jamison Kimberly to senior loan officer of the Montpelier organization’s agricultural lending program, the Vermont Agricultural Credit Corporation (VACC).
It has been a time of reflection for me. My heart goes out to families and friends who are grieving the loss of loved ones. I find myself drawn to gardens, to watch nature carry on.
Dear Colleagues and Members of our Porter Community,
Let me start with what I have been telling audiences in employee, medical staff, and public open forums — within the next 2-5 months Porter is going to decide whether to stay independent or partner with a larger organization. This decision could be made a little sooner or a little later, but not much. My point is, if you have an opinion on this topic you would like to express, now is the time!

As school districts across the country lead a push to create more engaging learning environments, technology has been cited as a critical component in improving student engagement and making learning accessible. From new online programming to interactive software to one-to-one initiatives, there are thousands of ways that the digital world can find its way into classrooms.
ADDISON COUNTY — The effort to unite Little League Baseball play across Addison County continued during July’s all-star season, when three teams made up of players from around the county held their own against their Chittenden County counterparts.

It’s a fool’s errand to speculate as to which of the three Democratic gubernatorial candidates is the preferred choice of Vermonters. Little polling has been done and the turnout for the Aug. 9 primary is expected to be relatively low. No one’s insight is any keener than anyone else’s; most of the campaigns are depending on solid field organizations to get their supporters to the polls.
VERGENNES — Between July 18 and 24, Vergennes police dealt with arguing couples, locked cars and a fraud complaint, as well as handled a number of other issues.
In those seven days, Vergennes police:
• On July 18 heard from a Main Street resident that her car had been struck while parked behind her apartment building.
• On July 18 served an abuse-prevention order on a male South Maple Street resident.
• On July 19 called the manager of an unlocked Monkton Road building to lock it up after hours.
