BRISTOL — Local police worked with Vermont State Police to arrest a man in Bristol on March 10 — twice in one day.
On Friday, March 10, at around 1:31 a.m. police were called to Main Street on a report that Joshua Bley, 36, had approached a woman on the sidewalk and shouted at her from his vehicle. Bley, who was described by Bristol police as an Oregon resident and by state police as a Lincoln resident, allegedly yelled out to the female, “Don’t be afraid, don’t be afraid,” and attempted to engage her in conversation.
MIDDLEBURY — One afternoon last week, in the newly renovated kitchen of Two Brothers Tavern’s underground Lounge, executive chef Matt Corrente prepped one Neapolitan pizza after another to the cranked-up backdrop of Marshall Tucker Band’s “Can’t You See.” Surrounded by boxes and soon-to-be installed equipment, Corrente moved about the new kitchen space, whose chic black walls create an open facade that protrudes out of the corner next to the bar.
MIDDLEBURY — Once again the Milk & Honey Quilters’ Guild is preparing for a wonderful quilt show and the first item on their agenda was to make a quilt for their raffle.

MIDDLEBURY — Human stem cells are a relatively new discovery in biomedicine. How were these cells discovered and what is their potential?
Harvard University’s Douglas Melton will address this question in a March 20 lecture at Middlebury College titled, “The promise of stem cells for cures and improved human health.”
This talk will consider the biology of stem cells and point to potential applications for new treatments of diabetes, brain and other diseases as well as enabling longer and healthier lives.
