MIDDLEBURY — “His timing has always been impeccable,” laughed John Tenny, a Middlebury selectman.

It figured, Tenny joked, that in the first week of January — one of the coldest months of the year in Middlebury — John McCardell, president emeritus of Middlebury College, would have his eye on a warmer clime.

Public's top bridge choice proceeds to design phase

ADDISON — Vermont and New York transportation authorities are proceeding with the design of a “modified network tied arch” span that will replace the former Champlain Bridge at the same location.

That news was confirmed on Thursday by Vermont Gov. James Douglas and Gov. David Paterson of New York. The modified network tied arch scheme was the overwhelming public pick from among six possible replacement options for the Champlain Bridge, which was closed Oct. 16 and imploded on Dec. 28 after having been deemed by state officials to be unsafe and unsalvageable.

Shard Villa now full after nearly closing

Posted on January 18, 2010 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — The Shard Villa residential care home continues to rebound from the brink, with board members announcing last week the historic facility has achieved full capacity with 14 residents.

“We’re hanging in there,” Shard Villa Director Deb Choma said on Thursday. “We’re doing alright.”

That’s a better prognosis than Shard Villa received last February, when a majority of its then-board of directors voted to at least temporarily close the facility in wake of financial problems besetting the elder care operation, established in 1919.

Student masters stock market

MIDDLEBURY — It’s been hard to make a buck on Wall Street during the past few years with a market that has been more bear than bull. It’s an environment that has chewed up and spit out many a seasoned broker.

Then there’s Forrest Wright-Lapin. At an age when most kids are collecting baseball cards and mastering X-box games, Wright-Lapin, 13, is proving himself to be quite the financial whiz kid. The Middlebury Union Middle School 8th-grader recently won first place in a statewide, scholastic stock market competition — and he did it without breaking much of a sweat.

In the air — safety vs. freedom

Posted on January 18, 2010 |
By Haviland Smith



All it takes to get America ginned up about terrorism and air travel security is to have another attempt to down a jetliner hit the press. Detroit has done just that. Suggestions for solutions to this problem cover the range from idiotic to inspired. One genius on CNN suggested we ban anyone with an Arabic name from flying at all. One rather thoughtful expert suggested that there are a number of devices available that are capable of sniffing out explosive compounds.

Mac Parker's lenders miffed at state inquiry

MIDDLEBURY — A state investigation concerning the financing of a full-length film by well-known Addison resident Malcolm “Mac” Parker has been misconstrued, says a spokesman for a group of lenders who support Parker’s project.

“First and foremost, we are strongly opposed to what the state is purporting … that he (Parker) is selling securities and that he is not licensed to sell securities. Both complaints are completely groundless,” said Vergennes resident Christopher White, a lender and spokesperson for a group of supporters who have established a legal defense fund on Parker’s behalf.
