MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury police responded to a report on Oct. 26 that some minor children might have been sexually abused at a Weybridge Street residence. The matter remains under investigation, police said.
In other action last week, Middlebury police:
• Received a report on Oct. 24 that four rings had been stolen from a Mountain View Lane residence.
VERGENNES —Vergennes police recently investigated two cases of fraud, one of which resulted in a $400 loss and the other involving a laptop purchase.
On Oct. 27, police were told by a downtown store employee that the employee had told a resident to stop sending money to a company that had promised the resident a $2.5 million prize. The resident had already sent away $400 before being advised to stop.
I stood thigh deep in a favorite large pool on the New Haven River working the deep channel at the tail. Wes Butler stood on the far bank working the inlet and a swifter channel where the current undercut a steep bank.
Between us we covered the pool thoroughly with a mix of nymphs and black and white wooly buggers, drifting and bouncing along the bottom as well as stripping through the current. But nothing stirred. No flashes of silver, brown, or rainbow red to suggest anything hungry and tempted by our offer.
Last weekend, a devastating and record-breaking blizzard slammed much of southern New England with incredible amounts of October snow. Yet the weather in Addison County was significantly less wild - instead of feet of snow, our first snow of the winter consisted of a dusting to a couple of inches on Saturday night.
Last Thursday, the Middlebury selectboard held a special meeting in East Middlebury to gather concerns about controversial work in the Middlebury River after Tropical Storm Irene. Town officials told a crowd of local residents that they’re caught between outside regulators, feeling abandoned by the state and blocked by the feds.
