Lawmakers wary of school mergers

Posted on April 15, 2010 |
By John Flowers



WEYBRIDGE — Local lawmakers served notice on Monday they are not enamored with a proposal to save around $20 million annually by consolidating Vermont’s 280 school districts into fewer than 50 and trimming public education personnel.

That public education consolidation plan, endorsed by Vermont Education Commissioner Armando Vilaseca, is part of a “Challenges for Change” cost cutting plan aimed at producing $38 million in savings for state government. Lawmakers are currently trying to shore up a $154 million shortfall in the fiscal year 2011 state budget.

Symposium highlights student research

Posted on April 15, 2010 |
By Andrea Suozzo



MIDDLEBURY – Where can you find solar houses, glass blowing, analyses of the Chilean health care system and old wooden trapping boats?

Students will be doing presentations on all of these — and more — this Friday at the Middlebury College Spring Student Symposium.

To be fair, the solar house won’t be on display, since it isn’t built yet. But building plans for the house will be on display all day at the symposium, an event that gives students a chance to present projects they have been doing to the wider community.

VERGENNES — When Ferrisburgh’s Kelsey Howard first came to the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Vergennes five years ago, she was an 11-year-old so shy she admits she spent a year doing little more than sitting in a corner with club supervisor Kathy Ciociola.

Vergennes eatery gets liquor license after patio debate

Posted on April 15, 2010 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — After hearing almost an hour of at times emotional and contradictory testimony, Vergennes aldermen voted, 4-0, to grant The Antidote a liquor license that includes the right to serve alcohol on its small rear patio until 11 p.m.

Two neighbors of The Antidote, a city restaurant, have attended the past two council meetings to say they are upset by allegedly persistent noise from the patio at the back of the building, which lies at the intersection of School and Green streets and borders a residential neighborhood.

By John Flowers



MONTPELIER — The Vermont Senate this week is expected to take its turn considering “Challenges for Change” legislation aimed at achieving $38 million in savings in the fiscal year 2011 state budget.

It was in February that the Douglas administration and legislative leaders agreed to undertake “Challenges for Change” — an effort they intended to go beyond one-time cost cutting and build long-term savings into state spending through changes in the way some state services are delivered.

VUHS student nets afterschool video award

By Andrea Suozzo



web_vuhsdudes.jpg

VERGENNES — Of the three people who learned that a video on the Vergennes After School bicycle maintenance class had won a statewide award on March 25, Robert Burbo betrayed the least emotion — which was strange, considering that he had made the video.

But this is how the soft-spoken Vergennes Union High School sophomore approaches most things, whether it is helping to set up a computer network for the middle school or deciding where to make a cut on a video he has filmed. Learning that he had won $1,000 and six Flip video cameras for the afterschool program was no different.
