MIDDLEBURY — New solar panels installed behind the Middlebury police station are now providing power to the project partners, Co-operative Insurance Companies of Middlebury, the town of Middlebury and the Acorn Renewable Energy Co-op.
The solar power array known as Acorn Energy Solar One, or AESO, is a community solar photovoltaic project organized by the Middlebury-based Acorn Renewable Energy Co-op. AESO is the legal entity that owns the 528-panel solar array.
MIDDLEBURY — In late September of last year, Middlebury Town Manager Bill Finger received notification from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers that the town may have violated the Clean Water Act by dredging and armoring the East Middlebury stretch of the Middlebury River.
BRISTOL — Before Tuesday’s boys’ basketball game at Mount Abraham Union High School, both Eagle coach Bill Leggett and Otter Valley coach Nathan Bellomo said their teams were continuing to hang together and work hard despite disappointing starts.
Both the Eagles and Otters also really wanted to add a W to their résumés: OV was 2-6, including a 44-41 home win over Mount Abe. The 0-6 Eagles were coming off a last-second loss at BFA-Fairfax that their coaches said was their best effort.

This summer I purchased an old, unfashionable Honda Civic that gave me no trouble (other than the mild bruising of my ego) until the first really cold morning in November, when the shifter got stuck in park.
