By JOHN FLOWERS
SALISBURY — For 30 years now, the Point CounterPoint chamber music camp on Lake Dunmore and the nearby Salisbury Congregational Church have played a sweet symphony together.

The musical relationship began back in 1979, when the Salisbury church was preparing to mark its 175th birthday. Then-pastor Wayne Holsman secured a $500 grant that the congregation decided to use for a celebratory performance series.

After 38 years, National Guard trumpeter takes 'farewell tour'

By ANDY KIRKALDY
VERGENNES — Jim Lanpher’s 38-year career with the Vermont National Guard’s 40th Army Band ends on Aug. 10 because he will then reach the mandatory retirement age of 60.

The Vergennes resident still remembers 49 years ago when he decided to start playing the trumpet. He was in school in his native Maine when he made the choice.

Music company reps displayed their goods. Among them were trumpets, the same instrument Lanpher’s father played in a U.S. Army career that began in World War II.

Bristol pastor arrives on a wing and a prayer

By KATHRYN FLAGG
BRISTOL — It’s the usual work of a man of the cloth: comfort the dying and celebrate with the living.

So, in many ways, it was business as usual for the Rev. Bill Elwell, pastor of Bristol Federated Church, who buried an old friend one recent Saturday morning, consoled the family and friends left behind, and then quickly switched gears that afternoon to perform the marriage ceremony for a joyful Bristol couple.

But looking back on June 20, Elwell admits it was a day that was anything but ordinary.

By JOHN FLOWERS
SALISBURY — It was unusually quiet at the Camp Keewaydin campus in Salisbury last week. A tympanic symphony of raindrops echoed from the roofs of camp buildings across Lake Dunmore on this Monday. It’s Mother Nature’s prelude to the pitter-patter of many feet and voices that will charge into the camp beginning on June 28 for what will be Keewaydin’s 100th summer season.

Middlebury to decide on future of M&E tax

By JOHN FLOWERS
MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury residents will be asked to eliminate the town’s machinery and equipment (M&E) tax over six years. Economic development officials say the move would in the short-term slightly boost residential property tax rates, but in the long-term help the community recruit and retain businesses.

Despite modest layoff, Goodrich solid

By ANDY KIRKALDY
VERGENNES — Although Goodrich Corp. in May laid off 11 non-technical workers from its Vergennes plant, a move a corporate executive called painful, the overall news for the largest employer in Vergennes and its parent company appears far from bleak.

Goodrich’s first-quarter corporate report for 2009, published in April, forecast a drop of just 2 or 3 percent in annual sales from 2008, from $7.1 billion to about $6.9 billion.
