Our family moved last week.
In fact, it would be more accurate to say that our family has been moving for the past year.
It all began with a dream: What if we lived with a little less house, on a little more land? What if we grew and raised more of what we eat?
SALISBURY — Interesting in reading the night sky?
The public invited to join others in this endeavor this Wednesday night, Aug. 10, from 9-10:30 p.m. at the Turner Residence at 662 Leland Road, West Salisbury.
Crispin Butler will give a short talk about the night sky. Then everyone will watch for meteors; find stars, constellations, and planets; contemplate the moon; and ponder the universe.
MIDDLEBURY — The Addison Central School District (ACSD) board on Tuesday, Aug. 2, picked Peter Conlon of Cornwall to serve as its chairman and got a preview of how the intricate, governance unification process for Middlebury-area schools will likely unfold during the next 15 months.

The quick action has left a key town department understaffed during the busy summer construction season and with no clear route for public input into the department restructuring. At the same time, some question whether the board acted legally by holding much of that July 27 meeting in secret session.
MIDDLEBURY — Matthew Gillis held a ruler up to the wall, meticulously marking a line that he and his fellow interns would later use to hang up the photographs in their art exhibition. If the line were to be even slightly crooked, the photograph would hang clearly at an angle unacceptable to the team.
