Meet the Singers.jpg

MIDDLEBURY — The Opera Company of Middlebury, now in its 10th season, has become a popular stop for talented young opera singers on their way to great careers. But there’s another big attraction.

“When these singers come to Middlebury they immediately feel as if they’re part of the community,” says OCM artistic director Douglas Anderson. “They make a lot of friends in the area, which is unusual, and one reason for that is ‘Meet the Singers.’”

This year, an innovative project at the University of Vermont aims to restore habitat for one of those specie: bobolinks.

Posted on May 2, 2013 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — Vergennes Mayor Bill Benton said this week city officials would take a measured approach to a request by Vergennes Union High School 8th-graders to make the city’s pool and recreation areas and its central green off limits to smoking.

Benton said several decisions have to be made, including whether to treat the pool and recreation area differently than the city green, whether to address public smoking with laws enforceable with fines or with less strict policies, and whether to act and how quickly to do so.
