Opinion: Fritz not just a good renovator

Posted on February 5, 2015 |
By Terry Faith Weihs Terry



In Thursday’s, Jan. 29, article, “Vergennes duels set for city council,” longtime Addison Independent reporter Andy Kirkaldy describes candidate Jeff Fritz, as “best known in Vergennes for purchasing a large Victorian Main Street home in 2011 and renovating it before moving there from Washington state.” While committing substantive energy and resources to the restoration of one of our most important Vergennes residential assets is in and of itself most admirable, Andy missed the point.

Opinion: Fritz a good pick for city council

Posted on February 5, 2015 |
By Debra Emerson

SnowPile3305.jpg

VERGENNES — Piles of snow, packed together in rows like moguls, occupy the parking lot of Falls Park on the south bank of the Otter Creek below Vergennes’ majestic falls.

That’s where the city stores excess snow cleared from downtown sidewalks and roadways. When the snow melts, it flows into the Otter Creek and then into Lake Champlain.
