Aldermen could take up issue of ownership of city rec land

Posted on November 2, 2009 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — Vergennes aldermen on Oct. 27 inched closer to a decision to accept ownership of the land under the city pool and nearby recreation facilities and discussed a way to help finance long-term operation and maintenance of the pool.

City Manager Mel Hawley suggested that the city council should request that the Vergennes ID school board, which now owns the land but is scheduled to dissolve next June, sell an adjacent eight-acre parcel it also owns and turn the proceeds over to the city.

The take from the sale could create a fund to help Vergennes afford pool ownership, he said.

City could allow backyard chickens

Posted on November 2, 2009 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — City Planning Commission Chairman Neil Curtis discussed at the Oct. 27 city council meeting two issues planners have dealt with in recent months: backyard chickens and off-site sandwich boards.

Essentially, Curtis said planners believe that all chickens are illegal under current zoning, but that new laws could offer room for compromise.

“That’s something we’d like to consider changing for smaller numbers,” he said, noting planners also believe aldermen should consider a “nuisance ordinance” for backyard fowl violations rather than harder-to-enforce zoning provisions.

By Kathryn Flagg



ADDISON COUNTY — Tomato season has come and gone, but late blight — a fungal disease that infected many tomato and potato crops in Vermont this summer — is still on the minds of many gardeners this fall.

As farmers and gardeners put their plots to bed, they’re taking care to make sure the blight, credited with causing the Irish potato famine of the 1840s, won’t spread to next year’s crops.

RIPTON — Ensconced in a former farmhouse tucked away amid the tree-filled slopes of Ripton, one could already argue that attending classes at the North Branch School is akin to going back to nature.

But the more than two-dozen students and faculty at North Branch took that concept a step further last week, as part of their contribution to the more than 5,200 worldwide global warming action events that occurred on Oct. 24 through the efforts of 350.org.

ADDISON COUNTY — Every couple of minutes last Saturday afternoon, a crowd formed on the footbridge below the Otter Creek falls in Middlebury. The gathered people watched the groups of whitewater kayakers shooting the 15-foot drop over the falls and riding the current at the bottom. Then the crowd would disperse as the kayakers climbed out of the water, portaged back above the falls as another crowd gathered to watch them drop the falls again.

Vaccines trickle in as swine flu hits schools

Posted on October 29, 2009 |

ADDISON COUNTY — Earlier this week, around 300 students at Mary Hogan Elementary School in Middlebury lined up for the H1N1 influenza vaccine, as some of the first doses of the vaccine trickled into Vermont.

The clinic came after last week’s announcement from the Vermont Department of Health that H1N1, informally dubbed the “swine flu,” had reached widespread levels in the state. This increased level of illness had been slower to hit New England than other parts of the country.
