Posted on November 22, 2017 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury voters next fall could be asked to approve a bond issue of more than $1 million to replace a deteriorating water main that serves several of the community’s largest water users in the community’s industrial park.

At issue is an 8-inch ductile iron water main pipe that feeds multiple connections off Exchange Street, including the Agri-Mark/Cabot cheese plant, Vermont Hard Cider, Otter Creek Brewing and the many health care providers within Catamount Park.

Organizers put a lid on Middlebury's Chili Fest: Town instead will offer 'Winter Fest'

Posted on November 22, 2017 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — Organizers of Middlebury’s annual late winter Chili Fest have decided to temporarily suspend the spicy culinary convergence, citing a shrinking downtown footprint and burnout experienced by some of the regular entrants.

Instead, the Better Middlebury Partnership (BMP) will replace Chili Fest with an inaugural “Winter Fest,” to be held at the Middlebury Recreation Park on Feb. 24, 2018. Plans also call for a community block party to be held in the downtown next April, according to BMP Marketing Director Karen Duguay.

ORWELL — Two thousand five hundred turkeys gobble as they mill about in one of Stonewood Farm’s eight massive turkey barns. Up in front is a pen of huge critters that will each yield a 50-pound bird, once roasted. Imagine that on your Thanksgiving table (and the oven that could hold it!).

A little over a week before Thanksgiving, Orwell’s Stonewood Farm is going full speed, close to 12 hours a day, seven days a week to process the 22,000 birds raised for this year’s Turkey Day.

MIDDLEBURY — A Salisbury farm will soon be turning on-site cow manure and Addison County food waste into renewable energy that will push Middlebury College’s campus beyond its goal of carbon neutrality.

The Goodrich Farm will host a Farm Powered-brand anaerobic digester that will, on a daily basis, process 100 tons of manure from the 900-cow farm off Shard Villa Road and 165 tons of organic food waste per day from some of the Middlebury area’s biggest organizations, including the Agri-Mark/Cabot cheese making plant in Middlebury.

When you walk into your home what does it feel like? Are you overwhelmed by the piles of shoes in the doorway, laundry heaped in the corner, dishes stacked in the sink and monster dust bunnies hiding all over the place? Those pesky cosmetic things, that with a good cleaning will disappear to reveal your beautiful, well-designed and thought-out living space?
