ADDISON COUNTY — When a fire destroyed the Blue Spruce Motel in Middlebury on July 12, volunteers from seven area fire departments responded with many firefighters going beyond the call of duty. The Addison County fire service was working like a well-oiled machine to ensure that citizens were safe and property damage was kept to a minimum.

It was this type of selfless hard work that earned four county firefighters from three departments recognition from a statewide organization earlier this month.

BRISTOL — Pete Lossman was among the 70 or so Bristol residents at Monday night’s hearing in Holley Hall on a proposed ordinance to regulate the discharge of firearms in Bristol.

MIDDLEBURY — Jamie Montague has always been drawn to communities offering an array of environmental and recreational assets — such as spacious parks and rustic walking trails. So landing a job in which she will manage many such assets for the Middlebury Area Land Trust (MALT) was akin to winning the lottery for Montague.

Montague, 30, succeeds Carl Robinson as executive director of MALT, a nonprofit organization that so far has conserved more than 2,600 acres of land, farms, forests, wetlands and recreational areas in and around Middlebury.

MIDDLEBURY — Porter Medical Center nurses and management are trying to hammer out a new contract that could soon affect a larger staff.

As reported in the Addison Independent on July 20, the proposed fiscal year 2018 PMC budget calls for adding seven new registered nurse positions to the current staff of 145.

Robotics 3girls 9056.jpg

STARKSBORO — Soon-to-be first grader Charlie Hill is building a LEGO bulldozer. It’s got a big rock in the bucket, a little LEGO guy on the back, and big wheels. Charlie is immensely proud of his creation. And he’s more-than-happily engrossed as he drives it back and forth along the floor and demonstrates repeatedly how the bucket goes up and down.

But this isn’t just any bulldozer, and Charlie’s not using just any playdough.
