MIDDLEBURY — Patricia A. Hannaford Career Center (PHCC) officials on Monday confirmed a new, two-year deal with the school’s 19 full- and part-time teachers that includes annual raises and a requirement that educators pay a greater proportion of their health insurance.

Fact: tomorrow is the first day of fall. It’s hard not to get a little depressed as the warm summer days shorten, our colorful gardens fade, and we swap our shorts and sandals for sweaters and boots.

Emory Fanning sat down lightly on the seat, stretched his fingers over the keys, and let his feet hover at the ready over the foot pedals. A gentle pull of a stop, flickering of his right fingers and the great hall of Middlebury’s Mead Chapel filled with a traditional organ melody. The sounds grew as he employed his left hand, and then feet, reaching a crescendo that held tones ringing in the 1917 building’s ceiling.

The selectboard has tentatively decided to give those easements for free to Vermont Gas, which is building out distribution lines within the community for its Addison Natural Gas Project.
