MIDDLEBURY — Nestled among his cows in Cornwall, a dairy farmer holds up a large-scale image of Switzerland crafted from pink insulation material.

Down the road, a husband-and-wife pair running a Cornwall farm stand posed with the outline of the United States. A Middlebury shopkeeper hides behind the long, boot-like silhouette of Italy, and a Burlington woman hunkers down beside the image of Africa, posted on the wall of her house.

After local natives Shawn Connors and Adam Cousino flew high off ramps on their motorcycles to perform mid-air daredevil tricks while deftly avoiding mishaps, dozens of drivers then deliberately created crashes in five demo derby heats.

ADDISON COUNTY — For local automobile dealerships, the “Cash for Clunkers” program has been a mixed blessing.

On one hand, the $1 billion government rebate program — which offers customers up to $4,500 if they trade in a gas-guzzling “clunker” for a more fuel efficient new car — has jumpstarted business at local dealerships. Since the program kicked off in late July, dozens of county residents have purchased new cars.

Posted on August 6, 2009 |
By Karl Lindholm



It was a surprise when my sister married the football coach in 1969, given the gadabouts in her life before Jim. She was living and working as a photographer in Cambridge, Mass., a haven for rebels, radicals and rascals of all shapes and sizes at that strange time. Jim was coaching football at Harvard when they met and he was fishing a lot. All he had to his name were an old Land Rover and two canoes.

Anders Holm confirmed on Monday that his family had just been quoted a price of $1.7 million for the water turbine that would have been the cornerstone of a project that would have produced an estimated 5 million kilowatt hours of electricity per year. Holm planned to market that power to area homes, businesses and the town of Middlebury.
