Watch the video here.

LINCOLN — Dancing gorillas, chattering teeth, jumping owls, rolling hamburgers, a climbing panda and a Mickey Mouse that strolls. What do they all have in common?

Weybridge man helps battle polio

MIDDLEBURY — Jason Schnoor in February got to witness India’s Taj Mahal, one of the most opulent and grandiose structures ever made by man.

But that elegant edifice paled in significance to another, far less conspicuous man-made creation that Schnoor and six of his colleagues dispensed to more than 130 children on a single day in India — a vaccine, doled out in simple two-drop increments, aimed at ridding the world of polio.

USPS may cut hours to spare post offices

By Andrew Stein



VERMONT — The U.S. Postal Service last week put forth a plan it says would save rural post offices, including several in Addison County that have been on the chopping block.

Instead of closing post offices, the agency is proposing to cut down the hours of some 13,000 rural post offices nationwide, including more than 140 in Vermont and 11 in Addison County.

The local towns that could see a change in post office hours are Bridport, Ferrisburgh, Granville, Hancock, Monkton, North Ferrisburgh, Orwell, Salisbury, Shoreham, Starksboro and Whiting.

MIDDLEBURY — TJ Donovan is seeking to graduate from chief prosecutor in the state’s most populous county to the chief law enforcement officer for the entire state.

Fulfilling that goal will be no small task, and Donovan, 38, knows it. He would need to prevail in an Aug. 28 Democratic primary contest against 15-year incumbent Attorney General Bill Sorrell, and then compete in the General Election in November.

Donovan said his candidacy is nothing personal against Sorrell.

By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — The owners of Jackson’s on the River Restaurant have elected to close the Bakery Lane business after a two-year run.

Announcement of the closing came in the form of a post on the Jackson’s Facebook site, one month after owners Craig Goldstein and Chris English had informed customers the eatery would be closed during the month of April.
