BRISTOL — Since she was 12-years-old, Moira Smiley has been recording people singing and speaking. “I’ve always been more of a listener than a speaker,” she said in an interview last month. It’s part of her mission as an artist: “to broadcast the notion that the human voice is vastly flexible and sensitive. And if we pay attention, we can understand each other on a deeper level.”

MIDDLEBURY — On Monday morning Vermont Transportation Secretary Joe Flynn issued an emergency order authorizing the Agency of Transportation (VTrans) to install two temporary bridges over the railroad tracks in downtown Middlebury in advance of a long-planned tunnel project.

While recent inspections have shown the bridges on Main Street and Merchants Row to be safe for travel, evidence of accelerated deterioration has prompted the agency to rapidly install temporary bridges this summer as a precautionary measure.

Take down bird feeders in spring

n VTF&W Bear MAKE LEAD HZ.jpg

MONTPELIER — The Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department says warm spring weather and melting snows will cause bears to come out of their winter dens in search of food. The department recommends taking down bird feeders on April 1 to avoid attracting them.
