SALISBURY — After not holding the event in 2011, Vermont Sun officials decided this year to bring back the grueling Vermont Journey, which was contested on Sunday and based at Branbury State Park on Lake Dunmore — and was dominated by newcomers to the Half Ironman distance triathlon.

The Vermont Journey is the longest triathlon held in Vermont, consisting of 1.2 miles of swimming, 56 miles of biking and 13.1 miles of running. The Vermont Journey is the apex of the Vermont Sun Triathlon Series of five triathlons.

MIDDLEBURY (AP) — A proposed $32 million rail spur that would be used to alleviate truck traffic between marble processor Omya Inc.’s quarry in Middlebury and its calcium carbonate plant in Pittsford has been put on hold indefinitely.

Bristol tallies up cost of flood repairs

Posted on August 30, 2012 |
By Andrew Stein



BRISTOL — When Tropical Storm Irene slammed Vermont  a year ago, Bristol wasn’t as badly marred as some Vermont towns. But large sections of several major roads were wiped out, construction projects were taken back to phase one and several old structures were destroyed.

One year later, Bristol Administrator Bill Bryant said the town’s infrastructure and finances are in good shape. He credited the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTrans), among others, for aiding in the recovery.

Towns learn lessons from Tropical Storm Irene disaster

ADDISON COUNTY — It’s been one year since Tropical Storm Irene wiped out roads, bridges and buildings throughout Vermont, taxing emergency management systems statewide.

That storm, and the weeks immediately after spent on emergency repairs, helped to get area town officials thinking more about the realities of disaster management, according to Tim Bouton, emergency response planner at the Addison County Regional Planning Commission (ACRPC).

GRANVILLE/HANCOCK — These days, business is good at the Old Hancock Hotel, which sits on Route 100 mere yards from the bridge that rising waters swept away on Aug. 28, 2011.
