Vergennes home's energy-efficiency features keep operating costs down_2039.JPG

VERGENNES — When building a new home it is important that it is energy-efficient and has a light carbon footprint, said builder Ken Ruddy — but not because of the awards it can win (although Ruddy’s new home in Vergennes has been honored).

“It’s simple economics,” said the founder and owner of the North Ferrisburgh design/build company Fiddlehead Construction. “It pays for itself from day one.”

Clippings by John McCright: GPS will help us find a better way

Posted on February 6, 2014 |
By John S. McCright

Clippings: Was it better in the good old days?

Posted on December 5, 2013 |
By John S. McCright



One of the endless saws one hears is that things were better in the good old days. When were these good old days? Back when men bound other men in chains, women were something less than second-class citizens, human lives were short and brutish and the best one could hope for was a death that was relatively quick?

Its finely sculpted body has beckoned many a lover of the finer things in life to stop and gawk and even make advances.

“Everybody and their brother dropped in,” said Jamie Simpson. “I had seven to 10 people per day asking if I’d sell it.”

The object of all this solicitous attention is a 1969 Chevrolet Chevelle SS.

LINCOLN — Harriett “Hattie” Brown has delivered the news from Lincoln for three decades as the town correspondent for the Addison Independent. The 94-year-old is sharp as a tack and more active than most people in their 10th decade; but she decided recently that she is ready to pass the job on to another Lincoln resident.
