Roadway Construction Coming To An End

E-mail Print PDF

     Main Street:  Weather permitting, Main Street will be resurfaced with blacktop the week of November 4, followed by paint striping.  Originally scheduled for October 22, repaving was delayed because the curbing for the sidewalks wasn’t ready.  Parking will revert to the original pattern at the intersection of Main Street and Danville Hill Road, with the addition of four or five off-street spaces between the hardware and grocery stores for employees.

   Mack Mountain Road: A larger culvert and guardrails have been installed and the road has been leveled.  This should address future flooding issues in the area.  This work is complete.

     Larry Gochey praised Gravel Construction and Griffith Construction for quality work and consideration for local businesses and motorists.  Both roadways will function better and be more attractive when the last of the work is done.

Book on Irene has Cabot Connections

E-mail Print PDF


Peggy McKay Shinn Vermonter Peggy McKay Shinn, a freelance writer living in Rutland, responded to Tropical Storm Irene by riding her mountain bike the next day on a trail through the woods to bypass the huge washout of Route 4.  Then  she made her way to Pittsfield to talk with residents and photograph the destruction.  Already, she had a book in mind, which was released in August and is now available in bookstores and online.  Its title is Deluge:  Tropical Storm Irene, Vermont's Flash Floods, and How One Small State Saved Itself. 

     For this book, Peggy interviewed Vermonters in Pittsfield, Jamaica, South Royalton, Wilmington, and Rutland.  These people show the human face of disaster, the losses that can never be fully recovered.  She also tells  the story of the amazingly quick rebuilding of Route 4 in two places by local contractors, who didn't wait for state government assistance, or even permission, to do the job.  The independent spirit of Vermonters, who  volunteered their time and machines to help, shows in all the stories in the book.

     Peggy Shinn is the daughter of Ferguson & Jane McKay, Cabot residents.  Jane's family has lived in Cabot since the 1860s, in the same house on Main Street.  The McKays have donated a copy of Deluge to the Cabot Library.

Education Legislation Update 

     The Legislature worked on many education issues this past session, including work on factors that impact our rising educational costs and the transition from the Department of Education to the Agency of Education. Here is a summary of some key bills:


Flexible Pathways:  With the passage of S.130, Vermont expands its “flexible pathways” program, encouraging high school completion while simultaneously allowing students to earn college credit.  This dual enrollment offers two state-funded college courses to qualified juniors or seniors available on college or high school campuses. Work based learning, virtual or blended learning, and early college for seniors are some of the new offerings that will be guided by Personal Learning Plans (PLP’s). PLP’s will be fully implemented in 2017 for 7 -12 students.
