Posted on December 16, 2010 |
By Andrea Suozzo



CORNWALL — The disparity between low-income students and middle- and high-income students progressing to college is growing wider, according to Rick Dalton, founder, president and CEO of the Cornwall-based nonprofit College For Every Student, of CFES.

Fortunately, a University of Michigan study released last month is proving that the organization’s efforts to get underserved students to college is working.

City 'Laundry' bakes up brick oven cuisine

Posted on December 16, 2010 |
By Andrea Suozzo

VERGENNES — Near the back of Vergennes Laundry, the brushed metal walls of the industrial oven flickered orange with the light from the fire inside.

The bakery, which opened on Main Street this month, is full of eclectic combinations — the traditional, two-hearth brick oven with a sleek modern finish is a start. But even more noticeable upon entering the bright, airy space are the two fur-draped folding lawn chairs and the wall-mounted antique caribou head.

“Its name is Benjamin,” said owner Julianne Jones last Thursday evening. “He’s pretty friendly.”

Around the bend: Putting on a festive face — gingerly

Posted on December 16, 2010 |
By Jessie Raymond



Every year at about this time, I get the urge to put on a red-and-green apron, crank up the Christmas music, and bake cookies. The warmth of the oven, the aroma of cinnamon wafting through the house, the thought of sharing homemade treats with loved ones — it all puts me in a holiday mood.

Unfortunately, it’s usually a bad mood.

Despite my good intentions, baking cookies leaves me stressed out. I end up with flour in my hair and misdirected feelings of animosity toward Burl Ives, Bing Crosby and yes, even Jimmy Stewart.

MIDDLEBURY — The Middlebury Union High School girls’ basketball team on Tuesday caught offensive and defensive sparks in the second quarter and defeated visiting Fair Haven, 41-27, in an opener that pitted two top-five Division II seeds from last winter.

The Tigers trailed late in the first quarter and were being badly outrebounded when Coach Cindy Atkins called for a switch from a zone defense to man-to-man.

Posted on December 16, 2010 |
By Victor Nuovo



 

This is the tenth in a second series of essays and reflections about politics and the moral life. The themes of the essays are drawn from Plato’s Laws, his last and longest philosophical dialogue written shortly before his death in 347 bce. Lawsis a fictional account of a conversation involving three old men with long experience in politics: Cleinias, from the Cretan city of Cnossos, Megillus, from Sparta, and an Athenian stranger who is not named, but who may be Plato himself. They have assumed the role of founders of a new Cretan city, Magnesia.

Editorial: A crossroads of good fortune

Posted on December 16, 2010 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



Middlebury could be poised for a resurgence in job growth with families moving back into town to fill vacant school desks, enliven athletic programs, create a need for home construction, fill stores with shoppers, prompt retail growth to meet local needs and infuse the community with the energy inherent in a town that has a vision for sustainable prosperity.

But, as in all things in business, such growth won’t happen without commitment and a willingness to invest.
