BRIPORT — Abundant rainfall coupled with late-summer heat and humidity have contributed to one of the worst mosquito outbreaks ever, though cooling temperatures this week should soon take some of the sting out of the latest adult hatch, local insect-control officials said.

“Things have gone south; it’s not good right now,” Paul Doty, manager of the Brandon-Leicester-Salisbury-Goshen (BLSG) Insect Control District, said late last week. He noted a recent spike in the mosquito population — particularly in the Lake Dunmore region.

ADDISON COUNTY — Annie Starvish has a suitor.

The heifer tags along as the veterinarian makes the rounds in the free stall barns at the Vorsteveld Farm in Panton, where she is out doing “preg checks.” Periodically, Starvish and farmer Rudy Vorsteveld throw their arms wide, corralling one of the heifers into a stall. Then, after a gentle, reassuring pat to the animal’s hip, Starvish inserts a gloved hand into the cow’s rectum. Soon after, her arm disappears entirely.

CORNWALL — Sara Daly, 37, at five-foot-four and the mother of two, seems an unlikely fist thrower. As co-founder of Waterfalls Day Spa in Middlebury and Waterfalls at Basin Harbor Club in Ferrisburgh, Daly spends her days surrounded by beauty and relaxation.

SHOREHAM — Addison County’s dairy farming industry continues to contract and diversify, but one thing has remained constant during the past 61 years — George Warner has been picking up the milk, and boy has he delivered.

Warner, now 82, wasn’t yet 21 in 1948 when he began hauling Addison County milk for Brox’s Dairies. Born in Vergennes and then living in Bridport, Warner recalls driving from farm to farm, picking up the milk in 44-quart cans.

Professional musicians to play New Haven teen composer's quartet

NEW HAVEN — Describing what makes a person a good composer of music is like describing what makes a person a good writer, according to David Ludwig.

“Some things you can quantify, like how clearly or effectively does he express himself,” he said in an interview last week. “Some you can’t define, like how does one person’s work touch our hearts more than another’s.

“Whatever that gift is, Tim has it.”
