  • Vermont’s New Handheld Device Law - Put Your Cell Phone Down!

    Posted by Posted on Tuesday, 30 Sep 2014 11:10 PM

    October 1 is here, time to learn what Vermont’s new handheld device law means for you. It is already illegal for any driver to text while driving or to use a portable electronic or computing device in a work zone, and for drivers under age 18 to use a handheld device anywhere. On October 1st that ban will be extended to all drivers everywhere in Vermont. Here’s what you need to know:

    Portable electronic devices include cellphones, PDAs, laptops or tablets and MP3 players, but not CB radios.

    An officer can stop any driver with a device in hand.

    Devices may be used if securely mounted in the vehicle, but not on the windshield, where it can be reached to activate or deactivate hands-free use through a speaker or Bluetooth device.

    Jeep: The Coyote Who Flew in World War II

    From press release

    Coyotes usually don’t have very good reputations, but in 1944, during World War II, a coyote was sneaked aboard the troop ship Queen Elizabeth and into England where he became the mascot for a U.S. Army Air Corps unit, actually flying combat missions.

    Sharon Chickering Moller, currently of Traverse City, Mich., has written a children’s book based on true stories from that time period:  Jeep: The Coyote Who Flew in World War II.  Although she wasn’t there in person to observe the coyote or his airmen friends, she heard stories from people who were there, including her father, Rolfe Chickering, who was a resident of Hinesburg for over 50 years. Sharon and her husband, Pete, visited some of the actual locations two years ago.  Not many people take a pilgrimage to the gravesite of a lowly coyote.

  • Local Farmstands Experience Theft

    Posted by Posted on Tuesday, 23 Sep 2014 02:37 PM

    Two local farmstands working on the "honor system" (customers leave money for what they purchase) have been the victims of theft recently. 

    In an email sent to customers on September 21, James and Sara Donegan of Trillium Hill Farm announced that their farm stand, operating out of the barn at 10643 Rte 116, will be closing early this season due to theft problems. They wrote, "We need some time to recoup and figure out what the future looks like for our farmstand. We want to THANK YOU all for supporting us and shopping at our stand for the last few seasons. Overall it has been such a positive experience for us, and we love seeing our neighbors at our farm on a regular basis. Hopefully we will be up and running in the spring. It feels disheartening that one person has ruined a good thing!"
