MIDDLEBURY — In a down economy, humane societies and animal shelters become overburdened with pets that owners can no longer afford to care for. And unwanted horses, some of the largest and most resource-intensive domesticated animals, present significant problems for those shelters.

On Tuesday, March 16, 6:30-8:30 p.m., veterinarians, members of Vermont humane organizations, farriers, horse owners and horse enthusiasts will gather at the Ilsley Public Library in Middlebury to discuss local solutions to what some say is an urgent problem nationwide.

ADDISON COUNTY — Acting in accordance with a new federal mandate, school officials in Vermont last week identified 10 of the state’s lowest-achieving schools, and offered the promise of hefty federal funding to those willing to make significant changes.

VERGENNES — By September the Small City Market should be a lot bigger.

On March 8, Cory and Hilary Foote, the Weybridge residents who for 12 years have owned the Vergennes store at the intersection of South Water and Main streets, received a Development Review Board permit to put up a new building to house their business — right across the street from their existing shop.

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.

By Kathryn Flagg



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.

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.
