Last week, about 200 people came out on a rainy Thursday night to watch Bess O’Brien’s documentary film “The Hungry Heart.” It is a moving and emotionally powerful 93-minute film on prescription drug and opiate addiction.
While the main meeting room in the Unitarian Universalist Society church in Middlebury was packed, it also means about 8,500 people in the Middlebury community were not there. That is expected, of course. No event draws all people.
MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury College football coach Bob Ritter was named NESCAC coach of the year, and senior quarterback McCallum Foote earned NESCAC Offensive Player of the Year honors for the second straight season.
Seven other Panthers also earned postseason honors when the NESCAC all-league teams were announced. Joining Foote on the first-team were senior offensive lineman Jack Allard, senior tight end William Sadik-Khan and sophomore receiver Matthew Minno.
While several Middlebury College teams pursue NCAA Division III titles this weekend — women’s soccer at home in a sectional and the cross-country runners out in Indiana — a Panther club team will also be seeking a national championship, namely the perennially successful Middlebury rugby squad.
