Wildlife rehabilitator helps raptors — and others — return to the wild

MONKTON — Helena Nicolay wears leather gloves and a “ratty, old jacket” as she walks up to a barred owl. She moves silently, slowly, deliberately — averting her eyes so as to not present herself as a fellow predator. She holds out a sliver of beef heart at the end of a shorter-than-most-of-us-might-feel-safe-with pair of metal tongs.

The owl snaps up the meat and devours it.

MIDDLEBURY — Seven years after vacating downtown Middlebury’s Frog Hollow district, the Middlebury Studio School has purchased its new headquarters at 2377 Route 7 South and is now looking to expand that building to keep pace with the growing popularity of its art and pottery classes.

ADDISON COUNTY — Candidates for local offices such as selectboard, school board and town moderator face a deadline for submitting petitions to their local town clerks.

Those running for any town or school office have until the end of the business day on Monday, Jan. 30, to file their petition papers. Petitioners must gather 5 percent of the checklist, or 30 signatures — whichever is fewer — for a town office.

BRISTOL — Organization and focus. Those are the key ingredients for Alganesh Michael — a South Burlington chef who specializes in her native Eritrean and Ethiopian food.

VERGENNES — Vergennes residents will have a choice on Town Meeting Day between an incumbent mayor who recently announced he will seek a third — and he says final — term, and a former mayor who served three terms between 2007 and 2013 and became mayor by unseating an incumbent.

Mike Daniels, 69, who has also served five years in two separate stints on the Vergennes City Council, the second of which ended this past March, said late this summer he began to get the itch to return to city politics.
