Shy dog takes major leap to self confidence

Posted on July 13, 2015 |
By Christy Lynn



Super Trudy 2.jpg

Trudy is a border collie mix whom we adopted four years ago when living in Vancouver, British Columbia.

When she first came to live with us, Trudy was prohibitively shy — she would roll on her back submissively when meeting any new person or even at the sight of another dog. It made it nearly impossible to take her out of the house.

Over the years and with plenty of exposure to love and attention, Trudy has become a different dog.

Posted on July 9, 2015 |
By Evan Johnson



BRISTOL — The price is right. That was the message Bristol voters sent Tuesday by approving a $3.19 million bond to build a new firehouse.

The 415-140 decision came at the end of a two-year process, during which Bristol’s Fire Facility Building Committee evaluated some 31 possible sites, discussed plans and held informational meetings.

Posted on July 9, 2015 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



FERRISBURGH — Addison County lakefront property owners have been skeptical about Vermont’s Shoreland Protection Act, which became law in July 2014.

For example, at a February 2014 legislative breakfast in Bridport several attendees panned draft versions of the bill, and some local lawmakers also came out against it during the legislative process.

Rolling thrones: Outhouse race brings humor, drama as Bristol celebrates 4th

Posted on July 9, 2015 |
By Andy Kirkaldy

BRISTOL — For Andrew Lafleur, Justin Stone and Blair Stone, the giant American flag draped over Bristol’s Main Street between two fully extended fire ladders on July 4 acted like the Arc de Triomphe does in Paris for the Tour de France winner. 

The flag — donated and lofted for Bristol’s Independence Day celebration by the Addison County Firefighters Association — served as the backdrop for their victory in a famous athletic event, the 37th annual Great Bristol Outhouse Race.

Garden-1458C.jpg

We Vermonters are so lucky. Just three hours’ drive from Middlebury we can experience the world-renowned Montreal Botanical Gardens, a vast parkland in the heart of a major city.

From the three Cultural Gardens to numerous specialty display gardens, plus a hundred-acre arboretum (home to almost every species of tree capable of growing in Montreal’s climate), this 190-acre complex offers delightful and varied experiences for everyone. Here are some of my favorites:

Aldermen peg city's tax rate at 75 cents

Posted on July 6, 2015 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — As expected, the Vergennes City Council on June 30 increased the Vergennes municipal tax rate by 2.5 cents to 75 cents.

That increase will add $25 to city tax bills per $100,000 of assessed value. Aldermen had been targeting that number for months and in their recent meetings had made major cuts to a draft budget.

Aldermen also approved a 2015-2016 general fund budget of $2,121,912. That number is an increase of about $34,000, or 1.6 percent, over the 2014-2015 general fund budget of about $2.088 million.

VERGENNES — They won’t be playing taps after all for the 40th Army Band of the Vermont National Guard.

Vermont Guard officials confirmed late last week that the 40th — which had been slated to be decommissioned and possibly made a detachment of the New Hampshire National Guard 39th Army Band — has been given an indefinite reprieve.

Rainy June bogs down farmers

Posted on July 6, 2015 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



floodedcorn8838.jpg

ADDISON COUNTY — According to the National Weather Service, June’s rainfall in Burlington of 8.67 inches proved to be the third highest since 1884, trailing only 1922 and 2013.

Nobody had to tell Vermont farmers that news.

“Every year we have our little times and issues with wet weather,” said Peter James, co-owner of Weybridge’s Monument Farms. “But this year it’s been the entire month of June.”

Heavy rain and clouds in June pose special problems for dairy farmers.
