JackBrowninShop6514.jpg

BRISTOL — Jack Brown has been tinkering with cars for almost as long as he can remember, or in his words, “since I was a pup.”

He grew up in Pennsylvania outside of Philadelphia and in the late 1940s went to boarding school in New Hampshire. Around age 14, Brown started learning about mechanics and taking an active interest in cars. At age 17, he moved back to Philadelphia and enrolled in the Spring Garden Institute where he studied auto mechanics and committed to the trade.

FERRISBURGH — Ferrisburgh and Panton residents will have a chance to dispose of hazardous household waste locally on May 19, instead of having to take the garbage to the Addison County Solid Waste Management District transfer station in Middlebury.

At some point the trash district also plans temporary drop-off stations to serve two groups of outlying towns; one hazardous household waste collection day will serve Lincoln, Starksboro and Monkton in the northeastern part of the county, and the other will serve Whiting, Goshen and Orwell on the southern end.
