By Andy Kirkaldy



FERRISBURGH — The Ferrisburgh selectboard on Tuesday set the town’s tax rates for the 2014-2015 fiscal year, and both residential and non-residential rates, as expected, saw significant increases.

The new overall residential rate is $1.7893, up by about 24 cents from the previous fiscal year rate of $1.5474. Treasurer Garrit Smits reminded the board, and about 10 residents at the town office building, that high per-pupil spending rates are pushing school tax rates higher.

Local woman brings word from Afghanistan

By Weyland Joyner



kerr bamyan.jpg

FERRISBURGH — When people asked about her health last week, Ferrisburgh resident Mary Kerr told them she had “Kabul cough.”

The condition, she explained, results from a mixture of air pollution from cars and truck exhaust and dust kicked up in the dry areas in the Afghan capital. Kerr just returned from seven weeks teaching at a special boarding school for girls there.

Kerr will present a slideshow and give a talk on her experience in Afghanistan this Wednesday, June 25, at the Ilsley Public Library’s Community Room from 5-6:30 p.m.

Rokeby to exhibit 100-year-old NYC postcards by Vt. artist

Posted on June 12, 2014 |
By Phoebe Lewis



postcards.jpg

FERRISBURGH — As Rokeby Museum Director Jane Williamson researched artist Rachael Robinson Elmer, who grew up at the Rokeby homestead in the late 1800s, she read of a mysterious painting. The depiction of New York’s City Hall painted in the Impressionist style had been rejected from a series Elmer created for a group of 12 postcards in the early 1900s, and it had not been seen since.

What Williamson didn’t expect was to find the very painting in the Rokeby archives, where it had been nestled since Elmer’s death in 1919.

FerrisburghTeacher1594.jpg

VERGENNES — It was more than 50 years ago when Ferrisburgh Central School challenge and technology teacher Linda Thurber first stood in front of a class and taught.

At that point, Thurber, 65, who will retire at the end the week after a three-decade Addison Central Supervisory Union career, was a freshman at her hometown high school in Doylestown, Pa.

Her teacher, probably already sensing where Thurber’s path would lead her, asked Thurber if she wanted to take over for a while.

Battle of Plattsburg.jpg

FERRISBURGH — When the Lake Champlain Maritime Museum launched the replica canal schooner Lois McClure back in 2004, then-LCMM Director Art Cohn anticipated the majestic vessel might complete a single, triumphant sailing tour and then serve as a very important exhibit on how maritime commerce was conducted in the region during the mid- to late 1800s.

FERRISBURGH — Ferrisburgh residents on Tuesday supported a $3.5 million Ferrisburgh Central School budget proposal, 246-217, or about 53-47 percent, in the town’s second vote of the spring on an elementary school spending plan.

Voters in 22.5 percent turnout also backed, 270-194, a separate $20,000 article that will pay for a keyless electronic entry system for FCS like those now used at other local schools. FCS officials said that system will improve security at the school’s main entrance.

Town leaders look for way to continue Ferrisburgh Day

Posted on May 15, 2014 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



FERRISBURGH — At the suggestion of Ferrisburgh Historical Society member Gail Blasius, the Ferrisburgh selectboard on May 6 voted to take over sponsorship and organization of the town’s annual Ferrisburgh Day celebration.

Blasius told the board the day, modeled after the town’s former “Good Neighbor Days” from the 1950s through 1970s, did not really fit into the society’s mission and also stretched its organizational ability.
