SHOREHAM — A cold warehouse is hardly the image that comes to mind as the heart of a local foods movement.

But that is what the owners of Vermont Refrigerated Storage and members of the Addison County Relocalization Network (ACORN) envision for the 35,000-square-foot cold storage facility in Shoreham.

Editor’s note: This article is part of a three-part series on Addison County residents who have sought help from the Quit Tobacco Program at Porter Hospital in order to kick their cigarette habits.

MIDDLEBURY — Fifty-five-year-old Suzanne Gagnon has been smoking for 30 years. She picked up her first cigarette when she was just 20 years old, and soon she was smoking two or more packs a day.

For the past five years, ever since she was diagnosed and treated for laryngitis, Gagnon has battled with her addiction.

UD-3 OKs budget with $300K in spending cuts

Posted on December 9, 2010 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — Voters in the Addison Central Supervisory Union’s seven towns will be asked on Town Meeting Day to support a 2011-2012 spending plan of $15,643,007, which represents a 2.03-percent decrease in spending compared to this year.

The decrease allows UD-3 — which includes the combined budgets of Middlebury Union Middle School and High School — to meet the state’s “Challenges for Change” directive.

Shoreham voters reject town office building options

Posted on December 9, 2010 |
By John Flowers



SHOREHAM — A majority of Shoreham voters on Tuesday decided to take a pass on two different options for building new town offices, instead electing to do “none of the above.”

That decision volleys the town-office-expansion issue onto the desk of the selectboard, which will spend the coming months deciding whether to fashion a project more modest than the $556,000 and $1,070,000 plans, both of which failed to garner enough support on Tuesday.

Lincoln to put forth bond vote

Posted on December 9, 2010 |
By Tamara Hilmes



LINCOLN — After the Vermont education commissioner in September rejected the Lincoln Community School board’s $3.7 million bond proposal to pay for infrastructure improvements, the Building Committee returned to the drawing board. On Monday evening the board approved a scaled-back, $2 million version of the original proposal.

The bond will go to a vote on Jan. 18, and a public information meeting on Jan. 11, for discussion between the board and Lincoln residents, whose taxes will increase for the next 20 years if the bond is approved.

'Night Fires' to be rekindled

Posted on December 9, 2010 |
By John Flowers



web_nightfiresphoto.jpg

MIDDLEBURY — Abigail Nessen Bengsen, 27, recalled with glee her long involvement with “Night Fires,” a winter solstice celebration in which since 1982 local performers had pierced the year’s darkest night with a creative cornucopia of music, dance, poems and stories from throughout the world.

“My family was involved before I was born,” Bengsen said. “I grew up in it.”

But Night Fires went dark in 2007 when its creator, Lincoln’s Marianne Lust, needed a break from the arduous tasks of staging what was then a traveling performance.

By Lee J. Kahrs



SUDBURY — The people of Sudbury have spoken, and the town elementary school will continue to teach all 20 students it serves.
Residents voted 110-39 to keep the k-6 Sudbury Country School open on Monday night following a two-hour information meeting held by the Sudbury school board. The vote was scheduled after a petition was presented to the board on Oct. 11 asking voters to consider shuttering the school due to falling enrollment and tuitioning students to other area schools.

Posted on December 9, 2010 |
By Tamara Hilmes



BRISTOL — Though the Bristol Christmas pageant will include the traditional Mary, Joseph and baby Jesus, complete with manger and barnyard animals, this year’s pageant takes on a rather untraditional format.

Seventeen-year-old Thomas Ahern, who has been taking a film class at the Patricia A. Hannaford Career Center, volunteered to film and edit a video version of the Christmas story that will premiere at the First Baptist Church of Bristol on Sunday, Dec. 12, on 4:30 p.m.
