MIDDLEBURY — We’ve all seen footage of what happens to a stranded car sitting in the path of an oncoming freight train.

The freight train always wins.

And when it comes to a dispute between a municipality and a freight train, the train seems to have the advantage — a likelihood that Middlebury officials and merchants are learning in their call for modifications to the Vermont Rail Systems (VRS) train schedules during the upcoming replacement of two downtown rail overpasses.

Farmer ready to fire air cannon to protect crop, but talks with neighbors set

Posted on August 20, 2015 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



FERRISBURGH — Although there is still time for a negotiated solution, the Ferrisburgh farmer who upset his lakefront neighbors a year ago by firing a propane cannon to protect his sweet corn crop said this week he is prepared to use the cannon again as soon as next week.

Wayne Stearns, owner of Crazy Acres Farm on Schoolhouse Road, said if the flock of starlings that lives on his farm starts attacking his corn, he is considering deploying a cannon that in 2014 fired thousands of times a day for about a month.

MIDDLEBURY — It was far from the Father’s Day gift that Middlebury resident Jeffrey Schnoor had been expecting.

While other dads were engaged in fun family activities back on June 21, Schnoor and his wife, Leilani, were frantically dealing with a major household disaster wrought by thousands of gallons of nasty sewer water that suddenly spewed from the first-floor toilet of their North Pleasant Street home.

Memoir tells of adventures mining for gold in the Klondike

Posted on August 17, 2015 |
By Joseph Brown



Klondike gold rush memoir.jpg

BRIDPORT — It all started at the Bixby Memorial Library in Vergennes, where Monkton resident and author Ivor Hughes was giving a PowerPoint-driven lecture about the Klondike Gold Rush in northwestern Canada, which reached its apex at the end of the 19th century.

At the lecture Hughes was approached by Bridport resident Gary Payne, a grandson of George G. Shaw, who in the mid-1890s ventured to the West Coast from Long Lake, N.Y., where he eventually heard of the gold rush.

Payne was excited to talk about the gold rush.

Rokeby book farming in 19th century.jpg

FERRISBURGH — Today, “eating local” is all the rage, from school cafeterias to four-star restaurants. But not that long eating local was theonlyway. It was a way of life and a matter of necessity.

Rokeby Museum announces publication of a new book: “Farming & Feasting with the Robinsons,” with text by Jesse Natha and drawings by Rowland Evans Robinson. This unusual pairing — the work of an artist who died more than 100 years ago illustrating the words of a contemporary writer — works together seamlessly.

Shade adds tranquility to a garden

Posted on August 17, 2015 |
By Judith Irven



Garden.png

It’s a common lament: “My garden is shady and boring. All I can grow are hostas!”

I beg to differ. I delight in shady garden spaces — cool, tranquil places for people, and home for plenty of interesting plants.

Dick and I love to retreat, cup of tea in hand, to a favorite garden bench under the trees, a private outdoor room complete with leafy ceiling, richly patterned carpet and a view to the sunny border beyond.
