Demolition of the Champlain Bridge

Posted on December 28, 2009 |
By Andrea Suozzo



A siren cut through Monday morning’s gray, flurry-filled sky above the Champlain Bridge and suddenly the anticipatory chatter among the assembled masses waned to a collective murmur.

In an instant, the wintry tableau before them was shattered by a loud thud, punctuated by a series of brilliant yellow and red flashes. Like a sand castle hit by a tsunami, the bridge dissolved into Lake Champlain from beneath a rising plume of thick, angry smoke, debris and dust.

Meredith Wilson's classical musical about traveling salesman Harold Hill and a small town in Iowa marched onto the Town Hall Theater stage last week, performing to audiences that sold out as many as three weeks before the show opened.

The musical, directed by Doug Anderson and featuring a cast of 46, was months in the making, and Addison Independent photographer Trent Campbell tagged along from auditions to opening night. His photos, as well as Anderson's commentary about the musical, are collected in our behind-the-scenes look at the making of the "The Music Man."

Bristol dancer keeps the world beat

BRISTOL — Against the backdrop of a steady beat of African drums, Soriba Simbo Camara leapt and twisted, his body, contorting rhythmically to the sound. He carried a cow’s tail in one hand, a symbol of power in Guinean culture, and wore a traditional West African shirt. The dance was feverish but graceful, and at its end, Camara catapulted his body from the ground in a tremendous jump.

Camara wiped the sheen of sweat from his brow, and caught his breath.

“It keeps you young,” he said, grinning just as he had all through the dance.

On Halloween, Sloan Weinberg had boxes of books for all reading levels lined up on her porch, ready for the wave of trick-or-treaters to come through Buttolph Acres. As each costumed visitor approached the porch, she chose a book of the right level, helped by her husband, Andy, and her two daughters, 10-year-old Grace and seven-year-old Jade.

"As a teacher, I thought it would be a great idea to give something to promote education and came up with the idea of a book," she said.

College museum unveils Renaissance art

Posted on September 28, 2009 |

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.
