VERGENNES — Vergennes officials have begun taking steps they believe will lead to safer downtown crosswalks for pedestrians and schoolchildren.

At the Nov. 29 city council meeting, aldermen agreed the city’s Water Tower Fund could be used to pay for some improvements, possibly sooner than later, and added Aldermen Matt Chabot and Mark Koenig to a task force that is looking at ways to improve pedestrian safety.

By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — At their Nov. 29 meeting, Vergennes aldermen continued to discuss the recent inspection of the city pool, which made some short- and long-term recommendations for upgrades and maintenance, some of which city officials are unsure of. They now agree on the needs to build separate chemical storage, new roofing on the existing building, depth markings on the pool and new starting blocks for the swim team.

Rifle hunters bag a record number of bucks

ADDISON COUNTY — Freezers throughout Addison County are packed with venison, and in many local homes that dish probably served as the main course on Thanksgiving.

That’s because the 2016 rifle season in Addison County was easily the most successful since 2005, when the Vermont Department of Fish & Wildlife banned shooting two-point “spikehorn” bucks during Vermont’s 16-day November rifle season.

Addison Town Plan hearing set for next Tuesday

Posted on December 1, 2016 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



ADDISON — What could be the final public hearing on a proposed new Addison Town Plan will be held by the Addison selectboard on Tuesday at 7 p.m. at the town clerk’s office.

The plan could lay the groundwork for new zoning laws that would allow for smaller lots in the town’s biggest zoning district, and create permanent regulations at the town level on solar arrays and wind turbines. The town now has interim regulations on the siting of solar arrays that the selectboard adopted in July.

High-scoring OV senior leads Addy Indy field hockey all star squad

ADDISON COUNTY — Unlike 2015, when Otter Valley and Mount Abraham union high school field hockey teams met in the Division II final and Middlebury won a first-round D-I game, the 2016 field hockey postseason in these parts was relatively brief: Only the defending D-II champion Otters won a playoff contest this time around.

But each team still enjoyed good moments, especially Coach Stacey Edmunds-Brickell’s 8-6 Otters and their high-scoring senior Allison Lowell, who repeats as the Addison Independent Field Hockey Player of the Year.

MIDDLEBURY — The Middlebury College women’s hockey team played well at home this past weekend in the annual Panther/Cardinal Classic, but came up just short in the final to top-ranked Plattsburgh, 2-1, in a rematch of an NCAA Division III semifinal from last March.

On Saturday, the 3-1 Panthers, who entered the weekend ranked No. 5, dismissed Utica, 5-1, in a Panther/Cardinal Classic semifinal before outshooting — and for long stretches outplaying — the 9-1 Cardinals in Sunday’s setback.

Ferrisburgh resident working to put performances, markets in former Grange

KateYarbrough9447.jpg

FERRISBURGH — If the dream of one Ferrisburgh resident comes true, the town’s office building and community center will by next summer start hosting a series of monthly performances — and before then host two family-friendly artisans’ markets that will help fund that series.

Resident Kate Yarbrough has already met with the Ferrisburgh selectboard about getting its permission to establish the Grange Series and Grange Markets in the town’s Route 7 landmark, and board members gave her an essentially friendly reception on Nov. 15.

MIDDLEBURY — Despite an underwhelming first half in the Panthers’ home opener two days before Thanksgiving, the Middlebury women’s basketball team eventually had little trouble moving to 3-0 by defeating Johnson State, 62-34.

The good? The Panthers held a second straight foe to fewer than 40 points, limited the 2-2 Badgers to 23 percent shooting, and outrebounded their third straight opponent, in this case by 54-29.

By Andy Kirkaldy



FERRISBURGH — The Ferrisburgh selectboard at its Nov. 15 meeting was supportive of a proposed series of concerts and markets to be held in the upper story of the town’s office building and community center.

Resident Katherine Yarbrough approached the board with a suggestion for three “Grange Markets” a year — a spring Artisans’ Market, fall Antique Market and a winter Christmas Market — that would fund an ongoing “Grange Series” of arts events, including music, dances, films, readings, lectures and other performances.

Ferrisburgh to review Plank Road speed issues

Posted on November 23, 2016 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



FERRISBURGH — Members of the Ferrisburgh selectboard last week sat down briefly with Daniel Crossman, a Plank Road resident who first spoke with the board a year ago about what he called an unsafe stretch of that road between South Middlebrook and Pea Ridge roads.

Crossman approached the board in November 2015 after a speeding car struck his wife’s car as she was pulling out of their driveway; fortunately, she only needed stitches.
