Posted on May 14, 2012 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — City Manager Mel Hawley introduced a draft budget to Vergennes aldermen at their May 8 meeting that could again allow them to keep level the portion of the city tax rate that funds municipal services.

The total of the proposed budget — not including fee-supported sewer spending — is $1,727,963, an increase of about $20,000.

Including $28,039 of charitable requests, the total grows to $1,756,002 and would increase by about $17,000 (because of a slight drop in those charitable requests).

MIDDLEBURY — Jason Schnoor in February got to witness India’s Taj Mahal, one of the most opulent and grandiose structures ever made by man.

But that elegant edifice paled in significance to another, far less conspicuous man-made creation that Schnoor and six of his colleagues dispensed to more than 130 children on a single day in India — a vaccine, doled out in simple two-drop increments, aimed at ridding the world of polio.

USPS may cut hours to spare post offices

Posted on May 14, 2012 |
By Andrew Stein



VERMONT — The U.S. Postal Service last week put forth a plan it says would save rural post offices, including several in Addison County that have been on the chopping block.

Instead of closing post offices, the agency is proposing to cut down the hours of some 13,000 rural post offices nationwide, including more than 140 in Vermont and 11 in Addison County.

The local towns that could see a change in post office hours are Bridport, Ferrisburgh, Granville, Hancock, Monkton, North Ferrisburgh, Orwell, Salisbury, Shoreham, Starksboro and Whiting.

TJDonovan4797.jpg

MIDDLEBURY — TJ Donovan is seeking to graduate from chief prosecutor in the state’s most populous county to the chief law enforcement officer for the entire state.

Fulfilling that goal will be no small task, and Donovan, 38, knows it. He would need to prevail in an Aug. 28 Democratic primary contest against 15-year incumbent Attorney General Bill Sorrell, and then compete in the General Election in November.

Donovan said his candidacy is nothing personal against Sorrell.
