Eight months ago my husband and I were told a really big secret. You know how hard it is to keep one of those. It was the kind that made us smile a lot, and look at each other with wonder and delight. Yes, you have guessed it, we were going to join the club that I have envied for what seems like years. We were going to be grandparents.

FERRISBURGH — About three months after the offer was first made, the Ferrisburgh selectboard on Feb. 5 voted unanimously to sign a letter of intent with Burlington firm Encore Redevelopment that could pave the way for a solar array on town-owned land.

Encore officials believe that a lease deal for a parcel at the intersection of Routes 7 and 22A could put almost $500,000 in Ferrisburgh’s coffers over the next two decades.

Now, with a toddler at home, Rheaume is pregnant with number two.

MIDDLEBURY — Despite sub-freezing temperatures this time of year, some Vermonters are bundling up extra warmly and making their way to work without the comfort of a heated car.

For myriad reasons that include health and fitness, environmental responsibility, and financial savings, many members of the Addison County community choose to rely on bicycles as their primary form of transportation.

MIDDLEBURY — On Friday, a Middlebury Union High School boys’ basketball team in a stretch drive for a top Division I playoff seed got past a visiting Mount Abraham team that continues to have few wins to show for its efforts, 85-29.

The Eagles trailed by just 9-7 late in the first quarter, but the Tigers closed the period with a 6-0 run and then dropped a 27-9 second quarter on Mount Abe.

MUHS Coach Chris Altemose said the 14-4 Tigers’ goal is to play the best they can regardless of the opponent, a target they hit on Friday.
