By JOHN FLOWERS
MIDDLEBURY — It’s not unusual for a student to bring in a poster, picture, letter or some other prop to bring a moment in time closer to reality for a history class.

Middlebury Union High School student Evelyn Hill last week brought her uncle to class — a man who not only experienced the Vietnam War, but whose self-professed greatest contribution is etched in history in one of the most iconic photographs of the fall of Saigon.

VERGENNES — The Vergennes Union High School boys’ lacrosse team achieved a key preseason goal on Friday, and made history for the two-year-old varsity program.

In a game moved to Middlebury College’s turf field because of wet grounds at VUHS, the Commodores defeated St. Johnsbury, 10-6, to improve to 8-7 and post the program’s first winning varsity season.

The Commodores did that despite having only 15 players on their roster, graduating 10 seniors, and fighting through a rash of injuries, including the early-season loss of starting goalie Seth Stone.

By ANDY KIRKALDY

WEYBRIDGE — Nine-year-old Matt Ouellette was scoping out his grandfather’s barn at Weybridge Farms last year when he spotted something quite ordinary, but quite interesting. It was an old, discarded lawnmower.

Graduates struggle in a tough job market

By KATHRYN FLAGG

MIDDLEBURY — More than 500 students took their diplomas in hand on Sunday at Middlebury College, marching across an outdoor stage on the college quad into a job market that, recent grads agree, proves as daunting a challenge as any final exam.

The graduates are heading into a marketplace where, according to a recent study conducted by the National Association of Colleges and Employers, employers expect to hire 22 percent fewer new grads this year than they hired last year.
