Injured Monkton man rises to the challenge, regains independence

Posted on December 14, 2015 |

ChrisGrant8851.jpg

MONKTON — Chris Grant pretty much had life by the tail.

He had his health, a home, a job and a Harley.

Then June 27, 2009, came along and changed his life forever.

Grant, then 36, was taking his motorcycle for a quick burn along Walker Mountain Road in Clarendon. He was a mile-and-a-half from his home when he rolled into a curve and saw an oncoming pickup truck that was veering across the centerline of the road.

Posted on October 1, 2015 |
By Gaen Murphree



BRISTOL — The superintendent of the Bristol-area school district, David Adams, has gone on leave, and the Addison Northeast Supervisory Union school board has named Assistant Superintendent Catrina DiNapoli to take over his duties while an “acting superintendent” is found.

Adams has drawn fire in the past seven months as voters rejected budget proposals for three of the district’s six schools, the teachers’ union voted no confidence in his leadership and a petition signed by 500 people asked for his resignation.

BRISTOL — The newly christened “Fort Compost” looks solid as a rock.

The 28-foot long, 14-foot wide, 6-foot high steel-and-concrete construction behind Mount Abraham Union High School represents seven years of student initiative, over $12,000 in fundraising and a new generation’s vision of a better, more sustainable world.

From start to finish, the student-led Environmental Action Group planned, built and funded the facility, which was formally opened at a ceremony last Friday.

Salamanders on the move.jpg

MONTPELIER — You may have already heard the spring peepers or wood frogs calling in your backyard. Or perhaps you’ve noticed salamanders crawling over rocks in a nearby stream. The arrival of spring brings the return of reptiles and amphibians to the Vermont landscape.

The frog calls you hear each spring are part of the animals’ breeding behavior, according to zoologist Mark Ferguson with the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department.

Monkton Central board warns school budget revote

Posted on April 6, 2015 |
By Zach Despart



MONKTON — The Monkton Central School board on Thursday evening warned for voter consideration a new spending proposal that shifts resources within the school without increasing the size of the budget.

The sum of the proposal, around $2.82 million, is $200 less than the version voters rejected on Town Meeting Day by a tally of 231 to 178.

If passed, the budget would represent a 9.3 percent spending increase over the present fiscal year. The new vote will be Tuesday, April 14.

MONKTON — Most Vermonters would be perplexed to see Culver City, Calif., appear on their caller ID. But when that happened to Monkton Central School teacher Kate La Riviere-Gagner this past fall, she had a hunch who might be on the line.

“I was in my classroom standing by the window and my heart jumped,” La Riviere-Gagner said.

As she suspected, it was a producer from “Jeopardy!” informing her to book a flight to Los Angeles, because she’d been selected as a contestant on the popular TV game show.

Opinion: Cornwall wise to halt Vt. Gas talks

Posted on December 30, 2014 |
By Jane Palmer



Boy am I glad I am not a selectboard member in Cornwall right now.

Talk about being caught between a rock and a hard place. To recap the situation, in a nutshell, Vermont Gas/Gaz Métro proposed a high-pressure fracked gas pipeline through Cornwall and Shoreham and under the lake to reach its potentially most lucrative customer ever, and the majority of voters in Cornwall and Shoreham (at their respective town meetings last year), told VGS to go pound salt.
