With winter fast approaching and this year’s garden put to bed, our thoughts turn towards our gardens of the future. As with our homes, every garden must meet certain functional needs, such as providing easy access from driveway to doorway. But also, like our homes, all gardens give us personal space to indulge and please our aesthetic sensibilities.
WILLISTON — Even as the first snowflakes of the year fell in the Champlain Valley Thursday, it was easy for any observer to note the progress construction crews have made on Phase I of the Addison Rutland Natural Gas Project, a 41-mile natural gas pipeline from Colchester to Middlebury and Vergennes.
A tour hosted by Vermont Gas Systems officials shuttled reporters to different sites around Chittenden County where workers are digging trenches and laying pipe.
MIDDLEBURY — After a dominant performance on home turf in this past weekend’s NCAA Division III Regional, the 19-1 Middlebury College field hockey team is going back to the NCAA Final Four for the first time since 2011.
The Panthers, ranked No. 2 in the most recent coaches’ poll, dismissed No. 5 Ursinus, 5-1, on Sunday in the regional final, a day after rolling over the University of New England, 7-0.
ADDISON COUNTY — Local hunters as young as 8 years old brought 107 deer to be weighed at Addison County reporting stations during Youth Hunting Weekend, Nov. 8 and 9, a total comparable with that in recent years.
In the past four years, the Youth Hunting Weekend take in Addison County has ranged from a low of 95 in 2010 to a high of 124 in 2012.

Dear Rep. Fisher,
I write to you with much sadness but also much gratitude and hope.
I would like to thank you for your incredible, good and solid work on health care.
I admire your tenacity just as much as your compassion. And I so appreciate your service.
I hope you know that what you have helped set in motion has not been in vain.
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Bristol was a nice place to live in the past and suddenly it has become even nicer.
Many thanks to everyone involved in the New Haven River Bridge, from the planners and all those whose photo appeared in the Addison Independent cutting the ribbon as well as to all those who showed up early for work in all kinds of weather and whose photo did not appear. The bridge is sleek, smart, handsome, modern, easy to use. Many thanks.
