By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — Vergennes aldermen held a public forum this past Monday to discuss a proposed $48,000 East Street toddler playground that has sparked debate. After hearing pros and cons from three dozen neighbors and other residents, aldermen said they would continue to study the issue but saw no clear path forward.

Mayor Bill Benton said afterward he was not sure what the council’s next step might be for a project that has already won support from a $21,000 Vermont Department of Buildings and Services grant.

It is the first detection of the EEE virus in the area this year, and the first in Vermont since it was found in mosquitoes from Grand Isle in the middle of June.

MIDDLEBURY — When Middlebury educator Priscilla Powers last year wrapped up her career at the Patricia A. Hannaford Career Center her retirement lasted all of five days.

“I left on a Friday and was back to work the next Wednesday,” Powers recalled with a smile.

But she doesn’t really consider her new career to be work.

Powers has swapped a classroom for her own kitchen, where she and son Ben have cooked up a premium lasagna enterprise that is starting to yield some tasty results in stores throughout the state.

By Lee J. Kahrs



BRANDON — For better or worse, Brandon has a budget.
