As a photojournalist I don’t really fit the mold. Compared to other shooters out there I am pretty laid back and quiet. I try not to get in anybody’s way (sorry if I have ever been in your way) and, please don’t tell my boss, I am not always willing to do anything to get “the shot.”
Oops. There they go again.

MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury police investigated a suspected domestic violence case involving a woman that was being treated for injuries at Porter Hospital on Nov. 22.
In other action last week, Middlebury police:

MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury Union High School officials are hoping students will get off to a running start with their classes beginning on Monday, Dec. 5, thanks to the launch of a voluntary “Zero Hour” fitness program aimed at getting participants healthier and in a better mindset for learning.

Neighbors, meanwhile, told the Middlebury Development Review Board (DRB) on Monday that they want to make sure the new equipment doesn’t bring more noise and traffic to the area.
