BRISTOL — If any tune was missing from the Bristol Band’s weekly summer concert last Wednesday night, it was “Happy Birthday to You.”

MIDDLEBURY — The Addison County Parent-Child Center (PCC) was born in 1980 in the basement of the Congregational Church of Middlebury with an uncertain future, but a noble mission: to help pregnant teens learn how to care for their children and make better decisions before conceiving again.

Thirty years later, the center has grown into its own building at 126 Monroe St. with a staff of 40 full- and part-time workers offering more than two dozen programs and services.

BRISTOL — For one weekend in early July, the town that bills itself as the “Gateway to the Green Mountains” will become the unlikely epicenter of the hardcore punk rock music world.

Twenty bands from around the country are beating a path to Bristol, where on July 3 and 4 musicians will take the stage at the Bristol Hub Teen Center for the “Screaming for Change” music festival.

By Kathryn Flagg



ADDISON COUNTY — A months-long push to extend emergency unemployment benefits to out-of-work Americans stalled in Congress late last week after a united GOP caucus kept Senate Democrats short of the 60 votes needed to push their bill through.

Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders’ office estimated that 1.2 million Americans are already experiencing a cutoff in unemployment benefits because of the Republican filibuster, including an estimated 121 workers in Vermont.

And in this era of the Great Recession — which started the year before George W. Bush left office (2007) — most Americans are sympathetic to how difficult it has been to find work and are grateful the country has a national unemployment insurance fund.
