Posted on March 26, 2015 |
By Addison Independent



BRANDON — The days are getting longer and warmer, the snow is melting and soon we will have April showers — all signs that spring is on the way.

Police shed light on Durst-Shulze link; Family releases statement

Posted on March 26, 2015 |
By John Flowers



PressConference6388.jpg

MIDDLEBURY — News of the arrest on March 14 of New York City real estate scion Robert Durst on a first-degree murder charge is reverberating to Middlebury, where Durst owned and operated the now-defunct health food store “All Good Things” in the early 1970s.

Middlebury police said an unsolicited phone tip in 2012 about Durst’s past ownership of the store led them to consider his link to a Middlebury College student who disappeared in 1971 after having purchased some dried prunes at All Good Things.

LincolnMeeting2346.jpg

LINCOLN — For 26 seconds, applause rocked the walls of Lincoln Community School’s tiny gymnasium Tuesday evening. The cause of the ovation was not, as one might suspect, a game-winning basket or conclusion of a musical performance.

Rather, a local resident asked her supervisory union board to fire the superintendent.

During visitors’ business of the Addison Northeast Supervisory Union board meeting, Koran Cousino of Starksboro presented a petition signed by hundreds of voters who support the dismissal of ANeSU Superintendent David Adams.

ADDISON AND RUTLAND COUNTIES — As the Vermont Senate Education Committee continues its work on an education funding reform bill this week, small schools are once again under scrutiny as lawmakers consider the proposition that school and district consolidation equals cost savings.

Now, a new report names specific small schools in Addison and Rutland counties as examples of what’s wrong with Vermont’s school districting system.

StoneCutters5503.jpg

VERGENNES — Gov. Peter Shumlin on Monday called on lawmakers to help him contain what he called one of the state’s top cost-drivers — education— in an effort to make Vermont more fiscally solvent and attractive to job creators. He also made a pitch for efforts to slow the growth of spending on health care (see related story).

Shumlin made his remarks before a crowd at the Vergennes American Legion hall during a legislative luncheon sponsored by the Bridport Grange and Addison County Farm Bureau.
