MIDDLEBURY — Gazing east from the Kenyon Lounge on the campus of Middlebury College, there’s a wonderful view — the campus’ sprawling athletic fields, golf course and Green Mountains in the distance.
That view just got a lot better, thanks to the installation last week of a new green roof on the school’s squash center, which opened last fall.
MIDDLEBURY — Three Middlebury residents have thus far submitted letters of interest to fill a vacancy on the town selectboard created by last month’s resignation of Selectman Travis Forbes.
MIDDLEBURY — August is not a time to kick back and relax for Middlebury business owner Jenn Buker. At the beginning of the month, Buker was downsizing and rebranding her skin care business. By mid-month she was moving to Texas.
Her business, formerly Glow Esthetics in the Zeno House on Court Street, has moved to the Star Mill building on Mill Street and opened there as Pro Skin Studio. Buker offers skin care services including facials, body waxing and eyebrow design for men and women.
“A garden should be in a constant state of fluid change, expansion, experiment, adventure; above all it should be an inquisitive, loving but self-critical journey on the part of its owner.”

ADDISON — In May 2013, Peter Macfarlane found himself in a bit of trouble.
The Addison resident had been canoeing across Lake Champlain and up the Missisquoi River for seven hours, enduring pouring rain and battling wind of 25 miles per hour.
“The conditions were foul, and things were looking bleak,” Macfarlane recounted.
BRANDON — It’s the end of an era for Otter Valley Union High School baseball as varsity head coach Tim Mitchell announced his retirement last week.
Mitchell, who led the Otters to a state championship in 2013 after a 37-year drought, said this past Monday that the demands of his business and his family led to his decision.
