CORNWALL — Almost two years after Nick Garza’s body was discovered in Otter Creek after a months-long search, the story of the vanished Middlebury College student lingers in the minds of the community.

Below the Falls, a new collection of poetry by Pulitzer-prize nominated Cornwall resident Gary Margolis, delves into the emotions of those months of searching in the winter of 2008.

“One of the ways that I express and relate to my own world is to write poems,” he said.

Bristol rescue squad lacks manpower

BRISTOL — The Bristol Rescue Squad is postponing its plan to hire a full-time employee, hoping instead that an influx of new volunteers after a Town Meeting Day plea to five-towns residents will help the struggling volunteer ambulance corps limp along.

The squad initially planned to hire its first ever paid employee after the volunteer ranks proved inadequate to handle many incoming emergency calls for assistance.

BRISTOL — Gov. James Douglas on Monday urged lawmakers to focus on three priorities during the second half of the 2010 session: Balancing the state budget, creating more job opportunities and finding new ways to fund public education.

The Middlebury Republican made his remarks at the Bristol Legion hall during his last legislative breakfast as governor. Douglas touched upon a wide variety of subjects, including Vermont Yankee, during a free-ranging discussion that saw local lawmakers sit back and let the governor soak up the political spotlight.

MIDDLEBURY — The Town Hall Theater has served as a hotbed for collaboration between townspeople and Middlebury College students since its opening 18 months ago.

Those on both sides of the equation say performances by college groups are drawing a whole new audience when they are staged off-campus. In addition, shows where students act alongside community members are breaking down boundaries between formerly separate arts communities.

By Angelo Lynn



MIDDLEBURY — For the past several months, Victor Nuovo, a Middlebury selectman and the Charles A. Dana Professor Emeritus of Philosophy at Middlebury College, has been drafting essays on Plato’s last and longest dialogue called “Laws.” He began the exercise, he said, at the urging of his wife, Rep. Betty Nuovo, D-Middlebury, who challenged him to take Plato’s work on the rule of law in a civil society and make it accessible to the layperson — not as an academic paper to other scholars.

City Legion honors longtime firefighter

VERGENNES — Former Ferrisburgh Volunteer Fire Department Chief Bob Jenkins remembers as a teen in his native Vergennes hearing the siren on top of City Hall, racing to the fire station to find out where the action was, and then heading to watch firefighters do their job.

“That got the adrenaline flowing,” said Jenkins, now 66.

At the age of 16 he followed in his father’s footsteps and approached Vergennes Volunteer Fire Department Chief Ralph Jackman and signed up, beginning a 50-years-and-counting career in the fire service, including 17 years as Ferrisburgh’s chief.

VERGENNES — A new owner recently took over Main Street fixture Vergennes Wine & Beverage, but he hopes that other than new paint, flooring and faces, its customers will notice little change from the way the store has been operated for the past dozen years.

Monkton’s Paul Kerin, a 24-year veteran of the beverage distribution business, bought the Stone Block store from longtime owner Andy McCabe on March 1.

MIDDLEBURY — A software glitch within the FairPoint Communications system interrupted both e-mail and Internet service for 280 customers in the Middlebury exchange this past weekend, a glitch that cost one local store at least $6,000 in lost business.

The service outage began early Saturday morning and lasted until late Monday morning, according to FairPoint spokeswoman Sabina Haskell.

“It was a software issue,” said Haskell. “It was a difficult issue to track down.”

Monkton town offices put on hold after vote

Posted on March 11, 2010 |
By Kathryn Flagg



MONKTON — Monkton officials gunning for the construction of a new town hall and community center are regrouping after Monkton voters on Town Meeting Day narrowly defeated a $1.4 million bond to fund the proposed municipal building.

Voters defeated a proposed bond, 226 to 193.

Though the proposed bond did not win voters’ approval, chair of the Municipal Building Committee John Phillips said the committee was actually encouraged by the outcome of the vote.

“Given the economic situation, it was pretty close,” said Phillips, who also sits on the town selectboard.
