LINCOLN — At first glance, the classroom-turned-dressing room at the Lincoln Community School looked on Tuesday night like the staging grounds of your average elementary school play.

Fifth- and sixth-graders bustled to and fro, snatching up pieces of their costumes and patiently waiting turns at makeshift hair and makeup stations. Teacher Alice Leeds darted from school gymnasium to classroom, from classroom to gymnasium, herding volunteer musicians into place as the students prepared for their first dress rehearsal.

Plato part 2: Following the rule of law makes us feel better

Posted on March 18, 2010 |
By Victor Nuovo



Editor’s note: This is the second in a series of essays about politics and the moral life by Victor Nuovo, Middlebury College professor emeritus of philosophy. The essays develop themes from a work by the philosopher Plato titled “Laws,” which he wrote shortly before his death in 347 BCE. “Laws” is written as a dialogue involving three old men with long experience in politics: Cleinias from the Cretan city of Cnossos, Megillus from Sparta, and an Athenian stranger who is not named, but who may be Plato himself.

On Tuesday, March 16, 6:30-8:30 p.m., veterinarians, members of Vermont humane organizations, farriers, horse owners and horse enthusiasts will gather at the Ilsley Public Library in Middlebury to discuss local solutions to what some say is an urgent problem nationwide.

ADDISON COUNTY — Acting in accordance with a new federal mandate, school officials in Vermont last week identified 10 of the state’s lowest-achieving schools, and offered the promise of hefty federal funding to those willing to make significant changes.

Addison County students attend four of the 10 schools that cropped up on the list: Mount Abraham Union High School in Bristol, the Bridport Central School, Otter Valley Union High School in Brandon, and Fair Haven Union High School, where students from Orwell are schooled.

MIDDLEBURY — The Middlebury College men’s hockey team’s remarkable late-season run ended on Saturday, when visiting Plattsburgh scored early in overtime to earn a 3-2 win in an NCAA Division III quarterfinal.

VERGENNES — By September the Small City Market should be a lot bigger.

On March 8, Cory and Hilary Foote, the Weybridge residents who for 12 years have owned the Vergennes store at the intersection of South Water and Main streets, received a Development Review Board permit to put up a new building to house their business — right across the street from their existing shop.
