MIDDLEBURY — In 1983, the Middlebury Union High School boys’ basketball team shocked the Vermont sports world.

Despite an undefeated regular season, the Tigers were lightly regarded heading into the Division I playoffs. Almost all of their wins came against D-II teams, not against the D-I iron.

By Andy Kirkaldy



This past sports year saw several teams, at least one from each local high school, enjoy historic seasons.

In the fall, the Middlebury boys’ soccer team earned the top seed in Division I for the first time ever.

In the winter, the Vergennes boys’ basketball team went undefeated and won the D-II crown, a feat nearly matched by the 23-1 title-winning Mount Abraham girls.

And then the Otter Valley baseball team rolled to the D-II baseball title with a 19-1 record that included a dominant playoff run.

State tax information shows rate changes in ANwSU region

Posted on July 16, 2013 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



ADDISON — While Addison and Vergennes town officials recently set local tax rates, state officials also released school tax information that made the rate picture clearer for residents of four of the five Addison Northwest Supervisory Union towns.

ANwSU rates are up somewhat after a year of little or no increases in 2012.

Posted on July 11, 2013 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — A series of delayed decisions has led to status quo at Northlands Job Corps: Alutiiq LLC, the center operator that the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL), the national job training program’s overseer, said would leave this past December will now remain there until at least September.

Northlands is also doing business as usual even though the DOL’s lease for the MacDonough Drive campus in Vergennes, an agreement that dates back to 1978, technically expired on June 1.

MIDDLEBURY — This past weekend’s inaugural visit of the Vermont Voyageurs semi-pro box lacrosse team to Middlebury’s Memorial Sports Center went well enough that the team’s management is considering another weekend-long visit next summer.

The Voyageurs’ senior and junior teams played a series of games at the Sports Center on Saturday and Sunday, drawing a decent crowd at $7 a pop on Saturday night and at least some fans for an early afternoon game the next day.
