  • Lake Champlain Committee Update & Call to Action on Blue-green Algae Blooms

    Posted by Posted on Monday, 11 Aug 2014 08:07 PM


    Blue-green algae blooms have begun developing on Lake Champlain, particularly in the shallow northeastern bays – Missisquoi and St. Albans. Blue-green algae thrive in nutrient-rich water and can multiply rapidly to form blooms and scums. It is not unusual for blooms to develop in late summer when the water warms. Periods of calm hot weather exacerbate bloom conditions, and they can appear anywhere.

    Algae conditions can vary widely over short time frames and short distances. While a bloom might occur in one isolated bay, the next cove over can be algae free. Some blooms persist for days, while others pop up and then disappear within a span of hours. Blooms are pushed by the prevailing winds, leading to denser shoreline accumulations downwind.

  • Lotus & Lilly

    Posted by Posted on Friday, 11 Jul 2014 01:01 AM

    By Jean Isham, HBPA

    Lotus & Lilly, one of Hinesburg’s newest businesses, was established by Marcie Lynn Taff and her husband, Matthew (Matt) Taff. The Lotus symbolizes creation and the birth of something new, and Lilly is their daughter’s name. Marcie said she wanted to create a business that could, in the future, be passed on to her children if they so desired.

    Marcie started making body care products several years ago. Her son, Finnigan, now four years old, has problems with food allergies and sensitivity to anything containing chemicals, additives, preservatives, artificial colors or flavors. Finnigan’s allergies have resulted in not only having to watch what they put into their bodies but what they put on their bodies, everything from lotions, bug spray, lip balm to bath products. Marcie also discovered that there is not a lot out there for children.
