Editorial: The making of political cynics

Posted on May 13, 2013 |
By Angelo Lynn



The cynic among us would note that the biggest danger of the Legislature not adjourning this past weekend is how much damage it can do in two more days.

A kinder analysis would note that because many budget issues were still unresolved, and the tax bill still incomplete, any late night heroics to finish by Saturday would have also been prone to error.

The Outside Story: For the pussy willow, spring is it’s time to shine

Posted on May 13, 2013 |
By Virginia Barlow



Last fall, I went to a nearby wetland with a pair of clippers and cut twigs from one willow shrub after another. It wasn’t hard to tell the willows from the non-willows because willows are the only woody plants in this area whose buds are covered by a single bud scale. These cute, pointy caps are very different from the overlapping scales that protect most buds through the winter. And the few woody plants with no protective scales are easily recognizable: their naked, embryonic leaves rely on a coating of woolliness to keep them from desiccating or freezing.

ANwSU residents to vote on $600,000 VUHS roof loan

Posted on May 9, 2013 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — Addison Northwest Supervisory Union voters on Tuesday will decide whether to support a proposal put forth by the Vergennes Union High School board for a five-year, $600,000 loan to put a new roof on the school’s leaky classroom wing and auditorium.

If voters back the $600,000 loan, payments would add about $10 of annual taxes per $100,000 of assessed home value, according to an estimate offered in April by ANwSU business manager Kathy Cannon. Those who are eligible for prebates would not pay the full amount of that increase.
