MIDDLEBURY — The Turning Point Center (TPC) of Addison County is seeking land or a building in which to relocate within the year. Free, would be nice.

MIDDLEBURY — Peter Hamlin says that while winter in Vermont is for the mountains, the summers are for the lakes. Hamlin has been enjoying Lake Champlain since he was a student at Middlebury College 30-plus years ago when he also worked as a chauffeur at the Basin Harbor Club in Vergennes and often canoed across the lake on the weekends to hike and explore in the Adirondacks.
