Middlebury College students help local food efforts

Posted on December 4, 2017 |

n Students food effort ACT148_3347.jpg

MIDDLEBURY — Addison County businesses, institutions and individuals could play a larger role in donating food to low-income residents if there were more storage space, transportation options and publicity about the need for such contributions, according to a recent study of the local food system completed by a group of Middlebury College students.

The report, which will soon be delivered to the Addison County Hunger Council, also hints at a potential upcoming spike in food donations due to Vermont’s Act 148.

By John Flowers



n SportsCenter3402.jpg

MIDDLEBURY — Stewards of Middlebury’s Memorial Sports Center have embarked on a new fund drive that would result in the long-awaited completion of the second floor of the 24-year-old community recreational facility that has served as the much-used home for Addison County ice hockey programs.

Specifically, boosters of the Memorial Sports Center, or MSC, want to raise $350,000 for a project that would, among other things, create a heated viewing area, elevator access and public restrooms for the top floor of the sports center.

Broadway Direct taps a dozen years in Vergennes

Posted on December 4, 2017 |
By Elsie Lynn Parini



n Broadway Direct BillC3292.jpg

There’s nothing quite like a Broadway show. They are simply magical.

If you’ve never been, picture this: As the sun sets, Broadway lights up. The strip is radiant with lights bounce off the theater signs, reflecting on buildings and damp city streets. People bustle down the sidewalks, others hop out of double-parked cabs, scurrying out of the chilly city air and into ornate theaters. Once seats are taken, the actors are ready, the orchestra is tuned and sets are in place, the velvet curtains go up on show after show.

MIDDLEBURY — Angling for a speaker spot at Middlebury College, right wing provocateur James O’Keefe ended up at the Courtyard by Marriott this past Thursday evening.

His appearance in town came the same week that O’Keefe and Project Veritas, the organization he founded, were under fire for trying to plant what they admit is fake news in a prominent national newspaper.

Letter to the Editor: Mount Abe board could lease existing facility, build new

Posted on December 4, 2017 |
By Stephen Harris



The bond request of $35 million to renovate Mt. Abe has failed twice. I believe that the request is asking for too much money to be invested in the wrong place. The reconstruction of the 50-year-old Mt. Abe building does not address three important background facts:

1. The community cannot afford this request.

2. Mt. Abe ranks number 33 of 55 public high schools in Vermont (by 2017 test results).

3. The student body is shrinking because the region is losing young adults due to lack of opportunity.

FERRISBURGH — The Ferrisburgh town attorney has sent a certified letter to the owners of the Vorsteveld Farm threatening legal action “for the cutting of shade trees within the public right of way of Arnold Bay Road without prior approval,” unless the Vorstevelds respond to the letter by Jan. 1.

In the Nov. 22 letter, attorney James Carroll wrote, “I further ask that you ask your attorney or any identified insurance claims representative to contact me to discuss the contents of this letter and a possible resolution of this matter.”
