MIDDLEBURY — Going door-to-door in Middlebury is old hat to Jill Charbonneau.

It’s something she did year-round for around three decades as a letter carrier for the U.S. Postal Service, until her retirement in 2014. Her visits to homes were quite quick and casual, with time enough for a quick “Hello” or update on a marriage or a graduation.

BRISTOL — Bristol resident Tammy Shackett was once an active member of her local community, but eventually she was forced to rely on an oxygen tank to breathe due to a lifelong struggle with lung problems.

After four years of waiting for a suitable lung donor, the 52-year-old announced on March 12 that she was done.

“It’s going to come when it comes and if it doesn’t I’m just going to adapt to living on oxygen,” she recounted in an interview this week. “I wasn’t giving up on life, I was giving up on waiting.”

Legislature to meet Thursday to rework solar siting bill

Posted on June 8, 2016 |
By John Flowers



MONTPELIER — The Vermont General Assembly will meet on Thursday, June 9, to address Gov. Peter Shumlin’s recent veto of S.230, also known as the solar siting bill.

Shumlin vetoed the bill on Monday. The law was designed to give greater say in the siting of solar projects to communities that draft energy plans that are compatible with the state’s renewable energy goals. Some town officials have expressed frustration at the current system, which gives the three-member Vermont Public Service Board broad powers in the permitting of renewable energy projects.
