Thoughts as many seasons blend together

We all have personal markers for the arrival of spring.

Mine include seeing Middlebury College baseball and softball scores show up from Florida or Arizona against schools I’ve never heard of, (McHenry County?), trash-talking at our annual fantasy baseball draft, (it did not go unremarked-upon that our defending champ bought non-Cy Young candidates Doug Fister, Vin Mazzaro and David Pauley), and second-guessing winter high school all-star teams (no Carl Leduc on the boys’ Lake Division stars, and no Tiger skaters on the Free Pressteams?)

Addison to revote on board unification

Posted on March 31, 2011 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



 

VERGENNES — Addison residents will be joining Vergennes citizens in voting for a second time this year on proposed one-board governance for the Addison Northwest Supervisory Union.

Residents in both those communities on Town Meeting Day backed a proposal for one board to own and operate the four ANwSU schools, but now will reconsider that support in a second vote.

If the Unified Union (UU) proposal survives both upcoming revotes, it would be the first significant consolidation move in Vermont.

VERGENNES — Like many 15-year-olds, Vergennes Union High School sophomore Kaitlin Leroux-Eastman listens to hip-hop, loves to hang around with her buddies, and enjoys the Twilight book series.

But probably not too many of the Vergennes resident’s peers match her nearly 200 hours of community service in the past year, conduct a church choir, and already have mapped out their college choice — St. Michael’s — and career plans — teaching music or French.

MIDDLEBURY — The Middlebury College men’s lacrosse bounced back from its only loss of the year to post a solid, 12-4 victory on Saturday over visiting Connecticut College.

The Panthers (3-1 overall, 2-1 NESCAC), who had lost in overtime at Wesleyan the week before, started slowly and trailed in the second quarter, 2-1. But then they scored the final four goals of the first half and the first two in the second half to take charge against the Camels (2-4 overall, 0-3 NESCAC).

Vergennes to make switch to quarterly sewer billing

Posted on March 28, 2011 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — The city of Vergennes will change how it sends out sewer bills. In the upcoming fiscal year, homeowners will receive their sewer bills quarterly along with their tax bills.

Aldermen at a March 22 meeting agreed with City Manager Mel Hawley and City Clerk Joan Devine that such a change in when bills are sent would be more efficient and save the city money in the long run. They also said that for most homeowners it would be easier to make quarterly payments of $87.50 rather than two semi-annual payments of $175.

VERGENNES — Vergennes aldermen last week acknowledged the city could not keep up with this winter’s near-record snowfall, but defended the efforts of the city’s public works department.

Mayor Michael Daniels said at the March 22 city council meeting that he was particularly upset about abuse public works employees had received from some residents despite what he called the employees’ tireless efforts.

If the Unified Union proposal survives either one or two revotes, it would be the first significant consolidation move in Vermont.
