Cash the dog is alive and well

Cash the dog is alive and well In a letter to the editor written by Jennifer Henley of Canton, Ohio, in the Sept. 17 edition of Shelburne News, Cpl. Aaron Noble was named as the officer Henley talked to about alleged animal abuse at Shelburne Campground. In fact, Noble was not on duty that day. […]

Town manager investigates animal cruelty allegations

Dear Editor, I’m responding to the letter to the editor published in last week’s Shelburne News regarding possible animal abuse at Shelburne Campground and Shelburne Police Department’s response. As a result of that letter I investigated the incident. First of all, the officer mentioned in the letter was not on duty that day and therefore […]

Vermont’s new climate agreements will boost our battle against climate disruption When Vermonters see a problem, we work to fix it. That is why earlier this year Vermont signed onto two historic climate agreements which will strengthen our state’s resolve to combat carbon pollution and transition to a new clean energy economy.

In the last few years the traffic on Bostwick Road and Orchard Road has increased tenfold. Last year I was almost hit by a car on Orchard Road.

Town Beach Boat Launch

On Wednesday, June 25th, I experienced a troubling event while launching and retrieving my sailboat at the town beach. The boat launch is clearly posted “Boat access is strictly for launching watercraft. No dogs or pets. No sunbathing, picnicking, swimming, No fires.” When I launched my sailboat around 4:30pm there was a family (mother and […]

Issues with Harbor Place

I have been following with interest the ​events around Harbor Place. At its inception it was swept in behind closed doors without any Shelburne community notification. That secrecy by Champlain Housing Trust and the former Shelburne Town Manager felt disrespectful to me and a bit suspicious at the time. Their disregard of Shelburne’s legal, local zoning processes must have […]
