On the Ball: Panthers dancing

Five (!) Middlebury College teams are moving along in the NCAA Division III title hunt this week.

Notes from the Border: The walkability factor

Posted on November 5, 2010 | Blog Category:
By Rebecca Reimers



When Brandon’s new town plan was drafted several years ago, walkability was one of the major assets that residents cited.  Historic development of Brandon has kept the original village compact, and new housing on Mt. Pleasant and along the spoke streets radiating out from downtown also tend to be small and close together.  The downtown shopping area has all the necessities within walking distance, including a supermarket, pharmacy, hardware store, library, three banks, a post office, and pizza and Chinese take-out restaurants.

Middlebury Trailrunner: Run like an Egyptian

Posted on October 26, 2010 | Blog Category:
By Jeff Byers



On long solo runs, the oddest thoughts pass through one’s mind. For example, on my last run I suddenly realized that the vast majority of my loop runs proceed in a clockwise direction. I have no idea why this is the case, but set out to rectify the situation with at least an occasional counterclockwise loop!
