MIDDLEBURY — The owners of The Centre plaza on Route 7 south confirmed last week that a Supercuts hair styling business will occupy a space in the shopping complex later this spring.
“I would expect them to open in around three months,” said Chris Hunt of Myron Hunt Inc., the company that owns The Centre.
The space in question is around 1,500 square feet and was previously occupied by a liquor store, according to Hunt.
When Vermont Commissioner of Education Armando Vilaseca released a report last week calling for cuts of $61 million out of the $1.5 billion annual education budget to help balance the budget in fiscal year 2011, you might have missed the political sleight of hand.
It went like this:
In the race to balance the estimated $150 million 2011 budget shortfall, the governor and company targeted a political issue that plays well to supporters: School spending and the desire to reduce school taxes.
NEW HAVEN — Tyler McGuire set about an adventure to build his own airplane in exactly the manner one might expect a 20-year-old college student to do: He jumped in headfirst.
The New Haven resident was holed up at college in Florida with his friend Abe Nehemias when the two aerospace engineering students considered the notion to build a functional airplane from a partially manufactured kit.
MIDDLEBURY — The Holm family is trying to partner with an out-of-state firm to re-energize plans for a small hydroelectric project at the Otter Creek falls in downtown Middlebury.
It was last summer that the Holms announced they were pulling the plug on their efforts to install a water turbine near the falls, a project they maintained could generate around 5 million kilowatt-hours of electricity annually.

As a (former) New Yorker, I’m well aware that a bagel is not your average bread. In Manhattan, there are several thousand bagel places to choose from, and each one makes their specialty a little differently. Everyone has an opinion on where to buy the best bagels — growing up, I spent countless hours in line on weekend mornings for a warm, freshly baked bagel, just around the corner from my apartment.
And while bagel snobbery seems to wane the further you get from New York City, sometimes you find warm, freshly baked bagels in the most unexpected places.

The snow has melted away at lower elevations (except for in my yard, but that is another story), the sun is shining, and the weather is warm. Is Spring here? No way – this is all Vermonters’ favorite time of the year, Mud Season, and chances are good that true “Spring” is a few weeks to a month away! Nonetheless, Friday’s 70 degree weather inspired me to go for one my favorite short hill climbs, Snake Mountain. I briefly contemplated breaking out my new running shoes to begin their break-in process, but at the last minute, decided against it.
MIDDLEBURY — Addison County lawmakers and their colleagues will spend the next several days studying a list of $38 million in potential savings in state government intended to help shore up a $150 million hole in the fiscal year 2011 general state budget.
MIDDLEBURY — Construction on the Cross Street Bridge project will begin to spill into the center of downtown Middlebury beginning on Monday, April 5, when road and utilities work will kick into overdrive and create some slower going for traffic in some locations through the early fall.
Work on the $16 million project has, until now, been largely confined to sections of Cross Street and Bakery Lane near the Otter Creek, where the enormous span is taking shape.
