MIDDLEBURY — As a child, Joshua Chamberlain loved to take mechanical things apart and put them back together again. He wanted to see what made them tick and make sure they kept ticking when he had reassembled them.

Now 41, Chamberlain is still taking stuff apart — only he is now getting paid for it. He has just opened The Laptop Shop on Middlebury’s Merchants Row, where he works out bugs in computers and a variety of other electronics for customers who might otherwise have to make the trek to Rutland or Chittenden counties.

Mayor-elect Bill Benton said aldermen would take up the issue at their next meeting, probably March 26. He does think most residents believe the city’s police force needs to move out of its tiny City Hall headquarters.

Posted on March 7, 2013 |
By Xian Chiang-Waren



BRISTOL — When faced with two votes for expanded municipal facilities on Town Meeting Day, Bristol voters said “no” to one and “yes” to the other.

MONTPELIER — Organic vegetable farmer and independent state Rep. Will Stevens of Shoreham has always sought to widen his horizons when it comes to agriculture.
