Two seeking Ferrisburgh selectboard seat

By Andy Kirkaldy



FERRISBURGH — Two challengers who would be first-time selectmen, but have civic experience, are contending for one open seat on the Ferrisburgh selectboard.

Dennis Armell and Michael “Red” Muir are seeking to replace Sally Torrey, who will step down after a decade on the selectboard. Torrey, however, will be on the Town Meeting Day ballot in a race for delinquent tax collector with former longtime town clerk Chet Hawkins.

Incumbent Selectman Jim Benoit is also on the ballot, but is running unopposed for a two-year term on the board.

MIDDLEBURY — Sue Hoxie smiled when asked how long it took her to apply for the top administrative spot at the Addison County Chamber of Commerce after former President Andy Mayer tendered his resignation last September.

MONKTON — Firefighters from two counties battled a Monday afternoon blaze that displaced five people at 842 Rotax Road in Monkton.

Monkton Fire Department Assistant Chief Curtis Layn said the call came in around 3 p.m., and by the time firefighters arrived minutes later, flames had engulfed a garage and also ignited a double-wide trailer six feet from the garage.

Clippings: Carr's death a loss to journalism

Posted on February 19, 2015 |
By Zach Despart



David Carr died last week. He was not well known outside of the journalism community, perhaps only by people who read his media column in The New York Times, but within the field he was revered as a staunch defender of the way journalism used to be practiced.

Carr embodied the tropes of an old-school journalist, right down to the stereotype of the chain-smoking, profane, no-time-for-bullshit newspaperman. That was and is a caricature, but wrapped within it is a dedication to the craft that Carr refused to let go of in the 21st century.
