VtSunSolar2911.jpg

MIDDLEBURY — You’d think that with a name like Vermont Sun Fitness Center, Steve Hare’s business would have gone solar sooner.

The notion of installing solar power panels at the gym off Exchange Street in Middlebury did occur to Hare about a decade ago. But back then, the businessman says, solar arrays were expensive and took a longer period to pay off installation costs than they do now.

Now, he says, thanks to changes in technology and production techniques, that’s changed.

MIDDLEBURY — Harry Zieve-Cohen has a problem. The nonprofit he works with, Middlebury Foods, aims to serve food insecure Vermonters, but its growth is stifled by how difficult it is to connect with potential customers in this rural state.

By John Flowers



Vet JohnRizner2222.jpg

MIDDLEBURY — John Rizner wasn’t getting much out of high school in West Dudley, Mass., back in 1946. So he quit school and decided to get a tutorial from Uncle Sam, which turned into a 22-year-lesson with the United States Army that included a lot of international travel and service during two wars.

Salute to Veterans: Faith sustained Many during time in Korea

By Evan Johnson



Vet RobertMany2877.jpg

MIDDLEBURY — Robert Many credits two things for helping him through his service in the Korean War: his faith and his ability to type.

Many grew up in Salisbury and attended elementary school there. He played baseball at Middlebury High School and claims his fastball was so fast he earned the nickname “Fireball,” which he has kept to this day.

“I could have played for the Red Sox but farming nearly killed me,” he said.

FERRISBURGH — American Legion Post 14 Commander Paul Paquin, like most American men who came of age in the 1960s, remembers how he chose to deal with the issue of serving in the Vietnam War.

Paquin, a Sheffield native born in 1947 whose family moved to a New Haven dairy farm in 1958, was working there when the recruiters approached him with the draft looming.

Salute to Veterans: Vets' reaction to war can be very different

Posted on November 10, 2014 |
By Patricia Lewis



“Listen to what vets say … and what they don’t say.”

I have lived with a veteran all my life — first my father, then my husband. Both men were profoundly affected by their military experiences.

My father, Walter G. Eaton, talked constantly of World War II, living the campaigns of Africa, Italy and France over and over again. Almost 60 years ago, when I was seven, I could recite his stories — and right before he died in 1996, I heard him telling his physician the same ones.

Dentist5247.jpg

BRISTOL — There’s a new dentist in Addison County; or more accurately, an old dentist.

Many residents remember the dental practice Dr. Jim Cossaart owned in Middlebury from 2000 to 2008. After returning to his native Kansas for six years, Cossaart and his wife, Deb, returned to Vermont this summer and last month opened up a new practice in Bristol.

The Cossaarts opened the new office, Bristol Park Dental, at the beginning of October. Jim Cossaart said it’s nice to be back in Vermont.
