Couple found not guilty of disorderly conduct

Posted on November 4, 2010 |
By Andrea Suozzo



MIDDLEBURY — On Sept. 30, Goshen residents David and Erica Sabatini were acquitted of the charges of disorderly conduct leveled against them last April.

The dispute between the Sabatinis and the state was resolved after a trial that lasted most of two days and a number of witnesses.

Attorney Oliver Cleary, who represented the defendants, said that it’s unusual for a disorderly conduct charge to go to court — it is usually settled before a case gets to trial. But, he said, the Sabatinis hoped to prove their innocence rather than settling the case.

Orwell school board gears up for deep budget cuts

Posted on November 4, 2010 |
By Andrea Suozzo



ORWELL — Across the state, schools are examining their budgets in the wake of the Legislature’s Challenges for Change recommendations. As school boards sit down for discussions, some — like in Orwell — are finding that they’ll have to sharpen the knife even more than originally projected.

“It’s a very tight year,” said Glen Cousineau, chair of the Orwell Village School board, which will be looking to reduce the school’s spending by approximately 10 percent.

Mobile eatery rolls out 'Ver-Mexican' cuisine

Posted on November 4, 2010 |
By Andrea Suozzo



web_burritoguy5530.jpg

MIDDLEBURY — Kristin and Damian Bittrolf trace their roots back to Ireland, Lithuania and Portugal, and more recently, to Cape Cod and Boston, Mass.

Six days a week, though, the couple dishes up pieces of another culture entirely: They sell burritos from Green-go’s, their food cart in Frog Hollow Alley, just off of Main Street in downtown Middlebury.

The two make no claims to authenticity — but they say that’s not necessarily what their customers are looking for. Damian said they have coined their own term for this hybrid cuisine: “Ver-Mexican.”

BRIDPORT — Peter Damone came within a whisker of losing his life, has his jaw held in place by a metal bar and is essentially confined to his home except for short walks and trips to the doctor.

But if you ask him, he’ll tell you he’s one of the most fortunate men in the world.

“I came so close to being gone; you’ve got to feel lucky,” Damone, 76, said on Thursday during a visit on his back porch, where a stray bullet changed his world almost three months ago.

“I’m standing — how can you be mad?”

ID-4 board eyes $235K budget "Challenge"

MIDDLEBURY — The Mary Hogan Elementary School board wants the public to weigh in on approximately $235,000 in 2011-2012 budget cuts that would be necessary for the school to comply with the state’s “Challenges for Change” request.

The Vermont Legislature and Education Commissioner Armando Vilaseca have asked the state’s school districts to prepare 2011-2012 budgets that reflect a 2-percent decrease in spending compared to this year. This Challenges for Change directive is designed to save around $23 million in overall education spending next year.

Around the Region: Addison looks at town hall uses

Posted on November 1, 2010 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



ADDISON — Addison selectmen and the town’s committee working on the future of Addison’s former town hall have continued working toward finding what it might cost to make the building functional and how the town might best use it.
At selectmen’s Oct. 5 meeting, town hall committee head John Spencer said the committee was just about ready to send out requests to architects for proposals to perform a “needs assessment” on the building, which stands on church property near the town clerk’s office.
The building currently lacks a septic system and needs restoration work.

City mulls sewer discount for seniors

Posted on November 1, 2010 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — At the Vergennes city council meeting this past Tuesday, aldermen discussed a suggestion by Deputy Mayor Randy Ouellette that the city offer senior citizens a discount on sewer bills.
In a Thursday interview, City Manager Mel Hawley said aldermen did not act, but indicated they might consider such a move in the future.
“That is something that is worthy of looking at it,” Hawley said.
One reason aldermen did not move immediately is because of an unknown expense in the sewer ledger — how much it will cost to remove sludge from the treatment plant’s septic lagoons.
