BRISTOL — “Studying history is about taking a leap of imagination,” Kristen Farrell told her students last week, standing in her history classroom at Mt. Abraham Union High School.

On Friday, that leap took students out of their classroom and back in time, when an annual Living History celebration brought the past to life at a small military encampment beside the Bristol high school.

By JOHN FLOWERS

MIDDLEBURY — Gov. James Douglas on Tuesday released his own proposed fiscal year 2010 state budget to counter the $4.5 billion spending plan he vowed last week to veto, but it appears as though the counter-proposal will not avert a legislative override vote slated for June 2.

The Middlebury Republican’s plan recommends further cuts, account transfers and raising $13 million in new revenues — roughly half the amount the General Assembly had endorsed to help bridge what had been a looming $281 million shortfall.

By JOHN FLOWERS

MIDDLEBURY — When the Vermont State Craft Center (VSCC) at Frog Hollow closed its doors early this year, the Middlebury area not only lost a gallery in which to display local artists’ wares, but also a school at which students could learn how to create their own arts and crafts.

The past few months have seen a homeless VSCC offer some classes at temporary venues. But now five longtime VSCC associates have joined forces to create a new “Middlebury Studio School Inc.” that they hope will fill the arts education void left by VSCC.
