Of fathers, sons and their coaches

Posted on September 10, 2009 |
By Karl Lindholm



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.

MIDDLEBURY – Plans are afoot to connect the Trail Around Middlebury (TAM) with other networks, and some of these plans could allow a neighborhood walk to turn into a cross-country trek.

Josh Phillips is the executive director of the Middlebury Area Land Trust, which maintains the TAM. Recently he contracted with the U.S. National Park Service to conduct a feasibility study for creating a trail through Addison Country. The trail would connect Crown Point, N.Y., with the Long Trail, linking the North Country National Scenic Trail with the Long Trail.

MIDDLEBURY — A veteran Middlebury Union High School field hockey team blanked less-experienced visiting Mount Abraham on Wednesday, 3-0, in a season opener that showed promise for both the Tigers and Eagles.

The Tigers, a team that returns 11 athletes who played key roles in last season’s 11-win squad, showed they might contend in Division I again. Their offense earned advantages in shots (13-7) and penalty corners (6-3), while their defense, which allowed only one preseason goal, posted another shutout.

MIDDLEBURY — Until recently, you had to travel down Cross Street or Bakery Lane to get visual confirmation of work on Middlebury’s new in-town bridge project.

But travelers along College Street last month received a rather abrupt signal that big changes are afoot. Seemingly overnight, five large, mature trees that bordered College Street in front of the Middlebury municipal building had suddenly disappeared.

Town eyes stimulus aid for $1.8 million sewer project

MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury voters may be headed to the polls as soon as this November to authorize $1.8 million in improvements to the town’s main wastewater pumping station off Seymour Street.

The upgrades in question involve increasing the pumping station’s wet-well capacity and improving the facility’s grit-removal system. The current wet well is becoming overwhelmed during certain wet weather conditions, prompting it to overflow on occasion. That overflow has found its way into the Otter Creek, thereby triggering the state mandate to have the problem fixed.
