MIDDLEBURY — Citing reduced orders for its bristle products and growing competition, Monahan Filaments executives confirmed on Wednesday they will close the company’s Middlebury plant on Nov. 15, thereby ending employment for 69 full-time workers.

“We don’t have the business to support the facility,” said Brian Crawford, vice president and general manager of Monahan Filaments, which in 2007 bought the former Specialty Filaments business out of U.S. Bankruptcy Court.

ADDISON COUNTY — Every year in the United States, anywhere from five to 20 percent of the population gets the flu, and more than 200,000 individuals are hospitalized from complications from seasonal flu.

But the buzz this year isn’t about the seasonal flu. It’s about the flu caused by the H1N1 virus, which was first detected in individuals in the United States in April. In June the World Health Organization signaled that a pandemic of the novel H1N1 flu was under way.

ADDISON — Lee and Pat Kayhart have each slung a bucket or two during their 40 years of dairying at their farm in West Addison.

Now the couple is poised to retire, selling their business interests to their sons — but they are not done with buckets. Lee Kayhart has started crossing off items on his “bucket list,” an ambitious series of accomplishments he’d like to cross off before he is no longer able. Kayhart, 61, and a couple of his buddies recently crossed off a big one, in the form of a parachute jump not five miles from the Kayharts’ farm.

My son Peter is 14 and in the ninth grade. He has decided to play football this year on the Middlebury Union High School freshman team. I hope he’s a better player than I was.

My dad, Peter’s Granpa, was a genuinely good football player, captain of the 1934 Bates College team, when football was king on college campuses and players were Big Men on Campus. He is a member of the Maine State Football Hall of Fame, among other gridiron honors, and still attends Bates’ games in the fall, at age 98, when the weather allows. He loved the hurly-burly of the game.
