Planning for Middlebury's downtown is at a crossroads

Posted on August 27, 2018 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury planning officials are again applying for a grant of up to $60,000 to prepare a downtown master plan that will serve as a blueprint for how residents want to see their village core develop in the future.

ADDISON COUNTY — Each Tuesday morning just before 9 a.m., Dick Thodal arrives at the Congregational Church of Middlebury, walks upstairs to the main prayer area, and continues on even further up a narrow, white staircase, tucked to the left of the organ pipes. Clad in his red suspenders, he climbs the old wooden steps inside the steeple until he reaches the boxy room where the town clock ticks along.

VERGENNES — When Addison Northwest School District students return to school this Wednesday they might not see dramatic changes, but district officials believe work this summer, funded by the $7.63 million bond voters approved in March, will make them safer and more comfortable in their schools.

Certainly, said ANWSD Superintendent Sheila Soule, the project came in on budget and on time: The district is ready to welcome its students.

“Everything went as planned, and we’re fully prepared to have our kids back,” Soule said.

LINCOLN — The Lincoln selectboard has a new member, effective immediately.

Ellie Bryant was appointed by the selectboard this past Tuesday, Aug. 21, to replace James Needham, who resigned on Aug. 7 for personal reasons. Needham had served on the selectboard since his election as a write-in candidate in 2015.

Posted on August 27, 2018 |
By Cynthia Gillen



Whatever you may think politically, I hope that everyone can agree that taking children away from their parents/families without any consideration for whom they may belong to or even telling the parents where they will be and for how long is an unacceptable treatment of immigrant seeking asylum in the U.S.A.
