Airport, Carrara plans approved

Posted on March 11, 2010 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — The Middlebury planning office has approved two substantial new storage buildings in town, one that will house steel fabrication activities at J.P. Carrara & Sons, the other to provide storage for maintenance equipment at the Middlebury State Airport.

Plans call for J.P. Carrara & Sons to erect a 17,000-square-foot, pre-cast concrete building on its property off Case Street. The building will become the company’s hub for rebar fabrication, the centerpiece of which will be a recently acquired new automatic rebar bending machine.

Around the Bend: Turkey love heralds spring's arrival

Posted on March 11, 2010 |
By Jessie Raymond



Not sure whether spring has arrived? Just ask a turkey. Judging from the way ours are acting, it’s been spring for weeks.

Mingling among our dozen or so free-range chickens, we have eight Slates and Bourbon Reds, two breeds of heritage turkeys. These old-fashioned breeds of turkey are heavier and tamer than the wild turkey and smarter than the genetically “improved” supermarket turkey, which in terms of adaptive intelligence ranks just above a cinder block. They let us know loud and clear when mating season — what we more politely refer to as “spring” — has arrived.

Middlebury Trailrunner: Norske Trail to Brown Gate Trail

Posted on March 9, 2010 | Blog Category:
By Jeff Byers



While the snow cover is much improved from my last posting, the gorgeous spring-like weather could bring the ski season to an early close, so I had to get out over the weekend and enjoy the deep, but increasingly slushy snow. You will also notice something very different about this post. As a rule of thumb, I am usually a purist in that I earn my descents by putting out the effort to gain altitude first. But today, I felt that a lobster analogy was quite appropriate.

ADDISON COUNTY — For most local maple syrup makers, each sugaring season is marked by something new. Prices fluctuate. Mother Nature is unpredictable. And now and then, there’s an advancement in the field of sugaring — like the “check valves” that many sugarmakers are using this year for the first time to increase production (see story, Page 18) — that changes the business of sugarmaking just enough to get everyone talking.

MIDDLEBURY — Dr. Michael Kiernan recently took a break from his regular job treating patients at Middlebury’s Porter Hospital to work 20-hour shifts treating even more patients in earthquake-ravaged Haiti.

It was an experience he wouldn’t trade for anything.

“This was the trip of a lifetime,” Kiernan said on Thursday as he transitioned back into his duties in Porter’s emergency room after having spent 13 hectic-but-fulfilling days caring for scores of severely injured patients at a medical center in Milot, Haiti.

Bristol cop won't be charged in prisoner incident

Posted on March 8, 2010 |
By Kathryn Flagg



BRISTOL — A Bristol police officer will not face criminal charges for handcuffing a prisoner to a wall outside of a South Burlington jail last month.

The announcement came last Wednesday, when Chittenden County State’s Attorney T.J. Donovan said the Bristol police department’s actions in the case were “unacceptable,” but that there was insufficient evidence to bring charges in the case.

Posted on March 8, 2010 |
By John Flowers



RIPTON — Ripton resident Robert Wagner confirmed on Thursday that he will run as an independent candidate for one of Addison County and Brandon’s two seats in the Vermont Senate.

Wagner, 46 describes himself as fiscal conservative who is liberal on social issues. He is running as an independent because he doesn’t see eye-to-eye with the major, established parties on a variety of issues, ranging from taxation to the future of Vermont’s statehood.
