FERRISBURGH — Only a pending delivery and the remote possibility of warm weather remain as hurdles for a planned skating rink next to Ferrisburgh Central School.

MIDDLEBURY — While some high school boys are out playing baseball, Aidan Ryan is stuck inside with his dad. Aidan doesn’t mind, though; he and his father, Greg, this fall released their second CD together as the band “They Might be Gypsies,” featuring 16-year-old Aidan on nylon stringed guitar.

“We play together a couple of times a week,” Greg Ryan said. “Whether or not it’s really rehearsing is up for debate. We have a good time.”

New Year's thoughts from New York City

Posted on December 29, 2011 |
By Matt Dickerson



“It was dark. Very dark,” Isreal Dudley recalls, thinking back almost 10 years to his first visit to Vermont. He was 11 years old at the time, and it was his first real taste of the rural outdoors. Thanks to the Fresh Air Fund, Isreal, also called “Isszy,” had come to spend a couple weeks with our family that summer. It wasn’t his first time out of Brooklyn, the borough of New York City where he had grown up and lived his whole life. The previous year he had spent some time with a family in Pennsylvania, also through the FAF.
