MIDDLEBURY — The Holm family is trying to partner with an out-of-state firm to re-energize plans for a small hydroelectric project at the Otter Creek falls in downtown Middlebury.
It was last summer that the Holms announced they were pulling the plug on their efforts to install a water turbine near the falls, a project they maintained could generate around 5 million kilowatt-hours of electricity annually.
As a (former) New Yorker, I’m well aware that a bagel is not your average bread. In Manhattan, there are several thousand bagel places to choose from, and each one makes their specialty a little differently. Everyone has an opinion on where to buy the best bagels — growing up, I spent countless hours in line on weekend mornings for a warm, freshly baked bagel, just around the corner from my apartment.
And while bagel snobbery seems to wane the further you get from New York City, sometimes you find warm, freshly baked bagels in the most unexpected places.
