ADDISON, Vt./CROWN POINT, N.Y. — At 1 p.m. this Saturday afternoon, two ferries on Lake Champlain will sound their horns for a crowd of people gathered at the Crown Point Historical Site.
The horn blasts will mark the one-year anniversary of the emergency closure of the Champlain Bridge, an event that plunged area businesses into months of struggle and wreaked havoc for the hundreds of people who daily commute across the lake.
EAST MIDDLEBURY — An ideal pairing of partners is often referred to as a “match made in heaven.”
Jaclynne Reed and Frank Wootten can truly lay claim to that maxim in light of an airborne exchange of vows this past Sunday, in a celestial ceremony that was also heavily steeped in numerology. The couple has the interesting distinction of having been married on the 10th day of the 10th month in the 10th year of this century at 10 a.m. at 10,000 feet.
Neither bride nor groom is likely to forget her or his anniversary date anytime soon.
MIDDLEBURY — The UD-3 school board on Tuesday, Oct. 19, will begin asking the public’s help in crafting what district officials predict will be one the most difficult budgets ever put together for Middlebury Union Middle School and High School.

Vermont State Auditor Thomas Salmon said he uses an extra, figurative tool in his arsenal: A spotlight.
“You’ve got to have a guy like me that wants to facilitate turning the lights on,” Salmon, who is running for re-election this Nov. 2, said during a Monday interview at the Addison Independent.
The 47-year-old Republican from St. Johnsbury faces opposition from Doug Hoffer of Burlington, who defeated former state Auditor Ed Flanagan in a Democratic primary contest in August.
