MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury state Rep. Betty Nuovo has never been one to be intimidated by numbers — whether they be state statistics, budget numbers or long odds.
So it should come as no surprise that the county’s longest-serving legislator is not in the least bit fazed by the number 80, which was the birthday she marked late last year.
“I feel great,” said Nuovo, a Democrat who has spent more than a quarter-century in the Vermont House and will be asking voters this fall to give her another two years.
VERGENNES — Larry Carlson was on the waiting list for an apartment in the Vergennes Senior Housing building for more than three years. Once construction began, he checked back every week to see if he would get in. Now a resident of the newly opened facility off Armory Lane, he is thrilled with his experience.
“As soon as the architect first came out, I was over to the offices and signed up. I was here every single week to check and see how the progress was coming,” said Carlson.
BRISTOL — When Katie Raycroft-Meyer — the newest addition to the Bristol Planning Commission — received a call from Bristol Town Administrator Bill Bryant Tuesday morning, she was surprised, to say the least.
Bryant informed her that she might lose her newly appointed seat because of her potential participation in a legal proceeding in which the town is involved — an accusation she adamantly denied.
ADDISON COUNTY — People looking to honor those who have served our country — and listen to marching bands, watch their neighbors’ kids walk together in uniforms, and look at creative floats — this Sunday and Monday will have a half-dozen options around the county.
Memorial Day parades and ceremonies are planned, in chronological order, in Orwell, Middlebury, Brandon, Hancock, Vergennes and Bristol.
Orwell kicks off two days of activities with its 39th annual Sunday afternoon parade, which will begin at 1:30 p.m. and last about 45 minutes.
