Middlebury PD loses dog, will hire officers

Posted on November 23, 2009 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury’s police dog program faces an uncertain future as newly appointed Vergennes Police Chief George Merkel. a Middlebury police officer, will be bringing his K-9 Akido with him to the Little City.

Merkel established Middlebury police’s K-9 program around five years ago, beginning with Blade, an animal he had inherited from a Vermont State Police trooper who had been deployed overseas with a National Guard unit. Blade has retired, but was replaced last June by another dog, Akido. Merkel owns both dogs.

Cross St. Bridge beams to roll through downtown

Posted on November 19, 2009 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — Peak fall foliage is long gone, but folks traveling through downtown Middlebury during the next few weeks will see quite a sight in the form of a major man-made attraction that, unlike the changing leaves, won’t return next year.

Vehicles bearing huge concrete beams — ranging in size from 65 feet to 110 feet long — were scheduled to wind their way on massive trucks through portions of the downtown on their way to the new Cross Street Bridge site on Nov. 19 and 20, and again on Dec. 1, 2, 3 and 4.

ADDISON — One Lake Champlain ferry will extend its run through the end of the year while another will pare back hours as New York and Vermont transportation officials continue to work on a temporary ferry service and explore the viability of a temporary span near the site of the closed Champlain Bridge.

Owners of the Ticonderoga Ferry confirmed this week that they will continue their extended run — weather permitting — from Shoreham to Ticonderoga, N.Y., through Dec. 31.

Posted on November 19, 2009 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury has netted $641,741 in its first year of levying a local option tax on rooms, meals, sales and alcohol, a sum that is comfortably ahead of the $600,000 needed to meet the community’s first-year debt obligation for the new Cross Street Bridge.

“I think the town should be very happy,” said Joe Colangelo, Middlebury’s assistant town manager. “Thankfully, we’ve made our goal.”

Probate court sized up for big changes

Posted on November 19, 2009 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — Eleanor “Misse” Smith left a local law practice three years ago to successfully run for the bench in Addison County Probate Court.

Smith served notice on Tuesday that her tenure as a judge may last for just one, four-year term. It’s not that she doesn’t love her job — she finds it very rewarding. It’s just that her job — and indeed, the way Vermont courts do their business — may change dramatically based on recommendations a judicial study panel has passed on to the 2010 Legislature.

Freidlich announces Senate run against Leahy

Posted on November 19, 2009 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — As a physician and a military man, Dr. Daniel Freidlich of Wilmington believes he has the right stuff to deliver remedies for health care reform and the war on terror, among other issues simmering in the nation’s capital.

And Freidlich clearly isn’t shying away from a big battle. The Democrat has decided to force a primary with none other than longtime incumbent U.S. Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., next fall. Not only that, it’s Freidlich’s first foray into politics.

CSAC going strong at 50

Posted on November 16, 2009 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — It was in November of 1959 that a handful of area citizens and health care professionals established a nonprofit “guidance clinic” in a small room in Middlebury’s municipal building, a service designed to offer personal and family counseling.

A half century later, that guidance clinic has grown into the Counseling Service of Addison County (CSAC), an organization featuring 255 employees delivering mental health services to around 2,000 clients annually out of 10 buildings throughout the county.

By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury selectmen this week will begin crafting a fiscal year 2011 spending plan with the collective goal of keeping the same municipal tax rate for a second year in a row, or perhaps even lowering it.

Ripton eyes plan to thwart floods

Posted on November 16, 2009 |
By John Flowers



RIPTON — Ripton residents this Tuesday, Nov. 17, will be asked for their feedback on a plan to buttress and stabilize a key stretch of the Middlebury River to prevent it from flooding the village during major storm events. The meeting will begin at 7 p.m. at the Ripton Community House.

The river in August of 2008 jumped its banks and flooded portions of Ripton village. Areas along the north bank of the channel were severely eroded during a major storm that month and portions of Route 125 both upstream and downstream of Ripton village got washed out.
