By Tamara Hilmes



UPDATE 2/4/11: After the Independent went to press, a union representative clarified to the paper that the strike would only be put on hold if a settlement were reached.

Negotiations broke down on Wednesday evening, and on Thursday the teachers set a strike deadline of Feb. 9 unless the two groups could reach a settlement by then.

BRISTOL — It looks like a strike by the Addison Northeast Supervisory Union teachers has been avoided — for now.

MONKTON — Longtime Monkton residents will notice a conspicuous omission on their Town Meeting Day ballot this year.

For the first time since 1973, Carmelita Burritt will not be running for town clerk. It will indeed be the end of an era in Monkton and the beginning of a new one, as Sharon Gomez is likely to become the community’s first new town clerk since the Nixon administration.

“It’s more and more work,” a smiling Burritt said on Monday. “I’m tired out.”

By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — Vermont Railway officials on Monday confirmed plans to acquire private and public land along the corridor of a proposed 3.3-mile-long rail spur that would link the Omya quarry off Foote Street in Middlebury with the main line west of Otter Creek.

Posted on February 3, 2011 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — On March 1, residents of Addison, Ferrisburgh, Panton and Waltham will be offered a choice on how their towns will in the future fund the Bixby Free Memorial Library.

LINCOLN — Only tiny shoes were visible beneath a red and yellow papier-mâché dragon as students at Lincoln Community school wove down the hallway last Friday, leading the other students in a colorful parade past classrooms.

Students created the traditional Chinese New Year dragon to kick off the festival that marked the culmination of the school’s month-long unit on China.
