Patchwork: A short discussion on the cucumber

Posted on July 22, 2010 |
By Barbara Ganley



I planted my first seed when I was three. At least that’s how the family story goes. While “helping” my mother in the garden shortly before we left for the summer, I was given a packet of cucumber seeds to hold, and managed to sprinkle them, without anyone realizing, among my father’s tea roses. We returned in August to a scene from “Little Shop of Horrors”: vines everywhere, crawling over the helpful, thorny roses, along the railing of the back stoop, up the fence and to the tops of the towering arborvitae. My father hated cucumbers.

By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — Deb Markowitz has had some pretty easy sailing in electoral waters since she ran successfully for Vermont Secretary of State back in 1998.

But Markowitz is certainly not lacking in resources or confidence.

“We need someone who can win, and that’s me,” Markowitz said in an interview with the Independent this week.

Posted on July 22, 2010 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



FERRISBURGH — A summary judgment issued on July 16 by Environmental Court Judge Thomas Durkin proved to be a split decision.

Champlain Oil Company may not proceed as planned with a convenience store, gas station and fast-food restaurant on Route 7 in Ferrisburgh because the project lacks sufficient acreage to conform with Conservation District zoning on some of its lot.

Youths to perform Shakespeare

Posted on July 22, 2010 |
By Erin Cummings



BRISTOL — Shakespeare’s “Comedy of Errors” tells the tale of identical twins, both named Antipholus, and their respective identical twin slaves, both named Dromio. Antipholus of Syracuse and his slave Dromio of Syracuse travel to the ancient city of Ephesus to find their long lost brothers, from whom they were separated at birth.
