MIDDLEBURY — Home cooking did not help the young Addison County American Legion team, which dropped its first three games at Middlebury College’s baseball diamond this past Thursday and Sunday to remain winless this summer.

AC came close on Thursday vs. South Burlington, rallying from a 5-1 deficit to force extra innings before falling, 7-5. In a Sunday doubleheader, however, visiting Essex steadily pulled away in both games for the sweep, 12-1 and 12-0.

Aldermen peg city's tax rate at 75 cents

Posted on July 6, 2015 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — As expected, the Vergennes City Council on June 30 increased the Vergennes municipal tax rate by 2.5 cents to 75 cents.

That increase will add $25 to city tax bills per $100,000 of assessed value. Aldermen had been targeting that number for months and in their recent meetings had made major cuts to a draft budget.

Aldermen also approved a 2015-2016 general fund budget of $2,121,912. That number is an increase of about $34,000, or 1.6 percent, over the 2014-2015 general fund budget of about $2.088 million.

Rainy June bogs down farmers

By Andy Kirkaldy



floodedcorn8838.jpg

ADDISON COUNTY — According to the National Weather Service, June’s rainfall in Burlington of 8.67 inches proved to be the third highest since 1884, trailing only 1922 and 2013.

Nobody had to tell Vermont farmers that news.

“Every year we have our little times and issues with wet weather,” said Peter James, co-owner of Weybridge’s Monument Farms. “But this year it’s been the entire month of June.”

Heavy rain and clouds in June pose special problems for dairy farmers.

FarmerStearns8693.jpg

FERRISBURGH — Those involved in the dispute over Ferrisburgh farmer Wayne Stearns’ propane cannon talk about shattered dreams — and the shattered peace in a neighborhood along Lake Champlain.

From mid-July through mid-August last summer, Stearns, 43, fired the cannon — which makes a sound his neighbors liken to a shotgun — every minute or so from dawn to dusk.

ANwSU board members get initial look at unification law

Posted on June 29, 2015 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — Many members of the five Addison Northwest Supervisory Union boards and several residents of the five district towns gathered at Vergennes Union High School on Wednesday to hear a review of school governance and unification provisions in a new Vermont law — and how quickly ANwSU might have to take action.

Act 46 creates incentives for school districts to unify their governance structures. ANwSU has tried to unify in three separate years and voted in favor of unification in 2010 and 2011, only to see petitioned re-votes reverse the outcomes.

ANwSU starts moving into new offices

Posted on June 29, 2015 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — Addison Northwest Supervisory Union employees were packing boxes and lugging office furniture and equipment from Green Street up Main Street late last week as they were completing the district’s long-awaited move to new office space in the Kennedy Brothers building.

ANwSU officials had signed a lease to move from the Cornerstone Building on Green Street in June 2014, a move that will save the district $11,800 a year for comparably sized space in Kennedy Brothers.
