MIDDLEBURY — Lovers of Otter Creek Brewing Co.’s Black IPA, Copper Ale and Hop Session beers might want to buy and savor them while they can.
The Middlebury brewery is phasing out those year-round products in favor of two new brews, the company announced last week: Backseat Berner IPA and Over Easy.
Otter Creek marketing director Jed Nelson said the brewery’s several seasonal beers, like the firm overall, have been performing well.
MIDDLEBURY — The Middlebury College men’s lacrosse team’s sixth straight victory came more easily than the previous five.
On Saturday, Coach Dave Campbell’s Panthers took a 6-0 lead over visiting Bowdoin in the first quarter and coasted to a 13-7 victory to improve to 6-1, 3-1 in NESCAC play. Middlebury’s only loss of the season was in the opening game to undefeated NCAA Division III and NESCAC champion Tufts.

Vermont’s scenic beauty has always been highly valued both by Vermonters and by visitors to our lovely state.
In 1968 Vermont banned billboards to prevent the despoiling of Vermont’s landscape. And when Act 250 was enacted a few years after that, it included Criterion 8, which prohibits commercial or industrial development that would create an “undue adverse impact” on the scenic or natural beauty, aesthetics, historic sites or natural areas.
In the Addison Northeast Supervisory Union district, I believe two elementary school budgets were defeated along with the Mount Abraham budget. Being a taxpayer in Bristol, I can only talk about what is happening in our town and my take on the high school budget.
Open meeting laws are part of state statue to insure citizens are kept abreast of what government is doing. That’s as much true in state government as it is for school boards, town selectboards, zoning and planning commissions, or numerous other committees and subcommittees formed to carry out the important work of government.
In taking on those tasks, the inherent understanding is that the work is to be done openly and within full access of public transparency and participation.
