ADDISON COUNTY — There was a day when renting out VHS tapes was almost as good as printing cash, said Terry Pellegrino.

Pellegrino, approaching 65, is known in Middlebury as the long-time co-owner of Video King, across the parking lot from Shaw’s Supermarket.

Last week, Pellegrino, a Castleton resident who with another five family members has operated a string of Video Kings in Vermont for more than 25 years, recalled the golden days of the movie rental trade.

BRISTOL — By his own admission, Reed Prescott’s mind never stops churning. At the artist’s studio on Main Street in Bristol this past Monday, he is surrounded by wood shavings and power tools, working on his newest line of products. Known primarily as a landscape painter, the Lincoln resident is now branching out into hand-carved wooden items — everything from earrings to buttons, zipper pulls and bracelets.

Egg Decorating in Bristol.jpg

BRISTOL — Just in time for Easter, Theresa Somerset of Essex Junction will be at Art on Main in Bristol on Saturday, March 22, from noon to 2 p.m. to demonstrate a painting technique that turns simple eggs into elaborate works of art.

These painted eggs — yes, they are real — are created in keeping with an ancient Ukrainian technique called pysanka, which means “to write on.” The method is wax-resist, much like batik, used with intensely colored dyes.

ADDISON COUNTY — Unlike 2013, the high school boys’ basketball season did not end this winter with a local team cutting down nets.

Still, three of the four area squads fared well enough to earn home playoff games, and all were led by athletes who submitted outstanding efforts that are recognized here in the 2014 Addison Independent Boys’ Basketball All-Star Team.

Vergennes home's energy-efficiency features keep operating costs down_2039.JPG

VERGENNES — When building a new home it is important that it is energy-efficient and has a light carbon footprint, said builder Ken Ruddy — but not because of the awards it can win (although Ruddy’s new home in Vergennes has been honored).
