By John Flowers

It’s a far cry from the classroom persona that “Mr. K” exudes in his Middlebury Union Middle School social studies class. While he practices some of the leadership principles he learned on the football field, Kulhowvick is known for being a fun-loving guy with a genuine interest in the subject matter he’s teaching.

By Christopher Ross



ADDISON COUNTY — For qualifying Vermont farmers, this year’s Margin Protection Plan for Dairy (MPP-Dairy) could amount to free money.

But only for those who sign up for it by June 1.

New transportation2.jpg

MIDDLEBURY — A group of Middlebury College environmental studies students have been trying to square two items in Vermont’s 2016 Comprehensive Energy Plan:

•  The state aims to reduce total energy consumption per capita by 15 percent by 2025, and by more than one-third by 2050.
