Middlebury Trailrunner: Mud Season Traipsing

Posted on April 5, 2010 | Blog Category:
By Jeff Byers



The snow has melted away at lower elevations (except for in my yard, but that is another story), the sun is shining, and the weather is warm. Is Spring here? No way – this is all Vermonters’ favorite time of the year, Mud Season, and chances are good that true “Spring” is a few weeks to a month away! Nonetheless, Friday’s 70 degree weather inspired me to go for one my favorite short hill climbs, Snake Mountain. I briefly contemplated breaking out my new running shoes to begin their break-in process, but at the last minute, decided against it.

MIDDLEBURY — Construction on the Cross Street Bridge project will begin to spill into the center of downtown Middlebury beginning on Monday, April 5, when road and utilities work will kick into overdrive and create some slower going for traffic in some locations through the early fall.

Work on the $16 million project has, until now, been largely confined to sections of Cross Street and Bakery Lane near the Otter Creek, where the enormous span is taking shape.

Petition calls for revote on one board

By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — As expected, Vergennes officials were handed on Tuesday a petition calling for a revote of the city’s Town Meeting Day decision to approve changing governance of the Addison Northwest Supervisory Union to a one-board system.

City Manager Mel Hawley said Aldermen Ziggy Comeau and David Austin and former planning commission member Michael Ferland each dropped off petitions with signatures calling for a second vote on the question. The total number of signatures totaled 85, in excess of the 75 needed to trigger a revote.

Editorial: Making the best of a bad rap

Posted on April 1, 2010 |
By Angelo Lynn



Hey, Mt. Abe, buck up. Take the good with the not-so-good and make the best of up to $600,000 the federal government is offering in school improvement grants. That’s not a lot of money spread over three years, considering the union school budget is $13.2 million, but what’s not to like about the opportunity to assess the school’s strengths and weaknesses and devise a “transformation model” that figures out ways to improve the weakest links?

Mount Abe fights poor state ranking

Posted on April 1, 2010 |
By Kathryn Flagg



BRISTOL — Administrators and some community members at Mount Abraham Union High School are balking at the school’s recent appearance on a list of the state’s 10 “persistently low-achieving” schools.

The designation means Mount Abe could qualify for as much as $600,000 in federal school improvement grants, and the school board voted last week to move ahead with an application for the funding. Meanwhile, school officials have also been quick to point out that the list of low achieving schools paints an inaccurate, oversimplified picture of Mount Abe’s record of achievement.

Editorial: Name that bridge project!

Posted on April 1, 2010 |
By Angelo Lynn



As long as Middlebury travelers are going to have to put up with traffic jams, delays, detours and other interruptions in daily travels because of the Cross Street Bridge construction and changes in surrounding roads for the next six months, let’s at least have some fun with it.

How so?

First, let’s give this project a snazzy name.

Bridge School marks 30th birthday, transition

Posted on April 1, 2010 |
By John Flowers

MIDDLEBURY — Richard Nessen still vividly recalls the day that he, his wife Kathy, and friends Gerry and Bobbi Loney decided to put into motion what had been a dream of starting a school.

“We had had a notion of starting a school together since the 1970s and one night, we just said ‘We’re going to do it.’ We gave notice at our jobs,” he said. “It was kind of like stepping off a cliff.”
