College tuition hike

April 26, 2007

By HARRIETTE BRAINARD

MIDDLEBURY — The annual cost of attending Middlebury College will hit $46,910, a 5.25 percent increase over the prior year, for the 2007-08 academic year. The increase includes a 5 percent bump in the comprehensive fee and a 50 percent jump in the student activities fee set by the Student Government Association (SGA).

College officials this week said the increase reflects the commitment their institution has made to increasing faculty size and student aid as outlined in the strategic plan approved last May.

“With the federal government taking less of a role in providing scholarships to college students all of us who are involved in educating students are trying to reduce the loan component for the sake of the student,” said Vice President for Communications Mike McKenna.

School merger brings more interest

April 23, 2007

By MEGAN JAMES

LEICESTER — With 64 students enrolled this academic year, Leicester Central School is more than twice the size of neighboring elementary schools in Whiting and Sudbury, which have tentatively planned to merge in the fall of 2008. Even still, the Leicester School Board is now considering joining in the merger.

“Leicester is shopping for a dancing partner,” said Bill Mathis, Rutland Northeast Supervisory Union superintendent.

School Board Chair Dorothy Jerome stressed that Leicester is still in the “talking stages” of a merger, but that declining enrollment was a top issue for the board. 

“It’s getting very hard to operate a school, and getting very expensive,” Jerome said. “Our concern is getting the best possible education to the children. Is that truly feasible with one or two students in a grade?”

College reacts to Virginia shootings

April 23, 2007

By MEGAN JAMES

MIDDLEBURY — In response to last week’s shooting on the campus of Virginia Tech, in which a 23-year-old English major killed 32 people and injured at least a dozen more before turning the gun on himself, Middlebury College officials are evaluating how they could contain a rogue shooter.

Among the options being investigated is installing a siren that would fit into an overall plan to make campus-wide communications more effective.

College President Ronald Liebowitz sent a written statement to members of the college community on Tuesday, assuring them that his administration is taking steps to refine the way it prepares for emergencies.

Spring storm pounds Brandon; power out for many

April 19, 2007

By JOHN FLOWERS

BRANDON — A vicious Nor’easter blew through southern Addison County like a freight train on Sunday evening and early Monday morning, leaving more than 3,200 area households and businesses — and the entire town of Brandon — without power for more than two days.

Central Vermont Public Service Corp. (CVPS) crews were still working feverishly on Tuesday morning to repair the Walnut Street substation that helps power all of Brandon.

Wind gusts reported in excess of 70 miles per hour in Rutland, along with wet snow, toppled scores of trees onto power lines and other electric utility infrastructure throughout Rutland County and into southern Addison County. Dozens of roads — including Route 7 — were rendered impassable for long stretches, until they were liberated by chainsaw wielding workers and volunteers.

Quincy Dunn-Baker gaining success as actor in New York City

April 19, 2007

By JOHN FLOWERS

MIDDLEBURY — Less than seven short years ago, Quincy Dunn-Baker left Middlebury with little more than a diploma from the Addison Repertory Theater (A.R.T.) program and a dream to someday make it big as an actor.

It now appears that “someday” is fast approaching.

Dunn-Baker, 24, is celebrating a very successful April during which he earned guest starring roles in the television crime dramas CSI: New York and Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. The icing on the cake came last week when he learned he will hit the stage this summer in a production of Romeo and Juliet as part of the prestigious “Shakespeare in the Park” performance series in New York’s Central Park.

Otter Valley fire leaves damage and questions

April 16, 2007

By CYRUS LEVESQUE

BRANDON — As Otter Valley Union High School cleans up after a fire last Wednesday that was set in a first-floor girl’s bathroom, a lot of work remains to determine both how the fire started and how the school will fix the damage.

At about 12:50 p.m. on April 11, a fire began in the bathroom near the gym, and smoke spread through the ventilation system to the second-floor bathroom directly above it. The school was quickly evacuated and no one was hurt.

The Brandon and Pittsford fire departments both responded to the alarm. According to OVUHS board Chair Jim Rademacher, the damage would have been much worse if the response had taken even just two or three minutes longer. “Most of the original building would have been gone,” he said.
