Vice chairman Neil Kamman said it’s late in the school-hiring season to find a permanent replacement.

RIPTON — Acclaimed writer and activist Rick Bass sparked a lively discussion about activism, the environment, and the justice system when he gave a lecture titled “The Joy of Being Arrested” at Middlebury College’s Bread Loaf campus this past Thursday morning.

And there, nestled between layers of damp newspaper, I discovered a delightful gift from a gardening friend — two Star Jasmine plants (Trachelospemum jasminoides) direct from a specialty nursery in Raleigh, N.C., where she lives.

MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury resident Jesse Euber started high school in Fair Haven and transferred to Middlebury Union High School. It proved to be a difficult period for her.

“I was having a really hard time with the transition and I wasn’t getting pushed to go to school,” Euber, 21, recalled in an interview last week.

She dropped out of high school when she was 16 and moved in with her son’s father. Without a high school diploma, Euber’s job prospects were limited, and her transition into adulthood was daunting.
