Video: Stone Soup at Quarry Hill School

Posted on November 19, 2018 |
By Megan James



At Quarry Hill School in Middlebury, November is all about Stone Soup. Three- and 4-year-olds spend the weeks leading up to Thanksgiving immersing themselves in the classic tale and preparing for a feast. They chop vegetables, make bread, churn butter, decorate stones and write menus and invitations. It all culminates in a big party — with songs and soup, of course — at school with their families.

Area orchards battled extreme weather; harvest still fruitful

Posted on November 19, 2018 |
By Christopher Ross

ADDISON COUNTY — The weather, as usual, wrote the complex story of this year’s apple season.

Take, for example, the beloved McIntosh, Vermont’s most popular variety, which accounts for roughly half the state’s annual production.

Blues music, to be precise.

So it makes sense that Caswell be the one to resurrect a monthly Blues Jam. But his path has taken him though a share of the blues.
