Orwell to field school unification vote for a third time

Posted on November 23, 2016 |
By John Flowers



ORWELL — Orwell residents next March will be asked for a third time to merge their school governance with that of five nearby Rutland County towns to form a new Slate Valley Unified Union School District.

Voters in Orwell have already rejected such a move twice this year.

But this time around the new unified school district would be able to take shape even without Orwell’s participation under a “modified” union school district permitted under Vermont’s Act 46.

MIDDLEBURY— “There’s a war going on. A war that has caused the colors of life to leave the bodies of those whose names you ascribe to fear. I will never forget how much death loves these people.”

Lena Ginawi, a slam poet and junior at South Burlington High School, stood in front of about 20 Middlebury residents last Friday in an apartment in the Marble Works Condos and recited those words.

MIDDLEBURY — Look at a child’s holiday wish list this year and you’ll be hard-pressed to find an item that doesn’t need batteries or isn’t endowed with electronic circuitry. If it doesn’t whir, ring, text, conjure explosions, rack up points or play movies, it’s probably not going to find its way under a Christmas tree.

It hasn’t always been that way.

Thanksgiving is a wonderful time of family, friends and food. But what happens when you're stuffed to the brim and have run out of things to say to your long lost relatives? Honestly, most of us would rather ditch the formalities, plop on the couch and surf the web. And what does surfing always boil down to? Cat videos. Don't worry your not alone; in fact, the Town Hall Theater and Homeward Bound have had so much success with their annual Cat Video Festival, they're hosting another festival for the third year on Saturday, Nov. 26.

Orwell farm loses half its turkeys to fowl cholera outbreak

By Gaen Murphree



ORWELL — Hail, flood, drought, plagues of locusts — since ancient times farming has been one of the riskiest of human endeavors. And it still is. Just ask Orwell turkey farmer Peter Stone, who’s facing devastating losses just as the calendar nears Turkey Day.

An outbreak of what’s known as fowl cholera, possibly introduced into one of the eight barns at Stone’s Stonewood Farm by a determined fox or bobcat, has claimed 15,000 turkeys — nearly half of Stonewood’s 2016 flock of 32,000 birds.

He and his wife and youngest son moved to Vermont from New York state.

Ideas included adding flashing lights, flags and more signs to city crosswalks; adding crosswalks; tweaking traffic signals; restoring a crossing guard cut from the Vergennes Union Elementary School budget; and following Safe Routes to School guidelines.

New use for wool could boost state's sheep industry

Wool insulation study Wool insulate 6.jpg

NEW HAVEN — Since shortly after its glory days supplying wool blankets and uniforms to Union troops during the Civil War, the Vermont wool industry has been struggling to regain its footing.

Now a New Haven farm is taking part in a UVM study to determine the feasibility of using wool as an environmentally friendly building insulation. Researchers hope this use could create a whole new market for the 100,000-some-odd pounds of wool that’s sheared each year off Vermont sheep and give a much-needed boost to the state’s sheep industry.
