Middlebury rail tunnel under green considered

MIDDLEBURY — Local, state and Vermont Railway officials are exploring the concept of installing a concrete tunnel beneath the railroad bridges at Merchants Row and Main Street in downtown Middlebury.

This new tunnel, officials believe, could provide a perfect fix for the two ailing bridges while allowing enough vertical clearance to accommodate double-stack freight cars that railway officials need to run from Whitehall, N.Y., to Burlington.

“It seems like (a tunnel) is a solution that meets everyone’s needs,” Middlebury Town Manager Bill Finger said on Monday.

MIDDLEBURY — State Sen. Doug Racine, D-Richmond, came within a few percentage points of becoming Vermont’s governor in 2002. He lost that race to current Gov. James Douglas, but is banking on being on the positive side of the voting ledger against a different field of opponents next year.

Racine, one of the first declared gubernatorial candidates for 2010, discussed his candidacy and the issues that he believes will shape the race, during a far ranging interview at the Addison Independent on Monday.

Middlebury readies for 'connector' road around municipal building

MIDDLEBURY — People who routinely travel past the Middlebury municipal building at the intersection of College and South Main streets may soon have a clearer view — and one that may not be more pleasing to some people, at least not initially.

Middlebury officials confirmed last week that a second round of tree harvesting will likely occur on the municipal complex grounds sometime in October, this time in an area behind the municipal parking lot that borders the town gym.

College endowment takes big hit, but loss not as bad as expected

By Kathryn Flagg



MIDDLEBURY — It’s a strange turn of events when a nearly 16 percent hit on endowment returns is viewed as good news at any institution.

But that’s the case, relatively speaking, at Middlebury College, where administrators report that the current fiscal year kicked off with a balanced budget.

MUHS grad returns to tell White House tales

MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury native Olivier Knox spends a lot of time doing translation.
It’s not really language translation — although he is a correspondent for Agence France-Presse (AFP), the oldest and third-largest news agency in the world. He has worked as a journalist in Washington, D.C., since 1996, and writes his stories in English.

But the translation he does is cultural — explaining what goes on in Washington from an international perspective.

Neighbors seek to stop pit Middlebury proposal

Posted on October 1, 2009 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — Opponents of a proposed new, 16-acre gravel pit off Route 116 have asked the Middlebury Development Review Board (DRB) to dismiss the application in light of what they see as a major conflict with the town’s zoning rules.

And barring outright dismissal of the application, the opponents — consisting primarily of neighbors of the proposed pit — are asking the DRB to delay its review of the application to give them more time to prepare rebuttal testimony.

College museum unveils Renaissance art

MIDDLEBURY — When Katherine Smith Abbott heard the news in 2005 that the Middlebury College Museum of Art was considering purchasing a 600-year-old Italian painting, she was elated. This was right up Smith Abbott’s alley.

An associate dean and a professor of art history at the college, Smith Abbott specializes in Italian Renaissance art. She knew that the college museum didn’t own any work from the Italian Renaissance, and she urged the museum’s director to consider the purchase, both because of its condition and the void it filled in the college collection.

MIDDLEBURY —Middlebury’s Town Hall Theater (THT) last week was once again hosting a sizable audience.

But those assembled in THT’s sumptuous performance hall on Thursday were not taking in a play; they were learning about how to help returning soldiers and their families deal with the real-life drama of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and other war-inflicted mental health issues.
