MONTPELIER, Vt. — Some residents of a Vermont street that is split by the Canadian border are irked by what they feel is the latest indignity imposed on them by U.S. border officials who they feel continue to make it harder for them to reach their homes.

There are other examples of communities straddling the border, including Escourt Station in Maine. By Wilson Ring. SENT: 600 words.
