MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury Union High School officials are hoping students will get off to a running start with their classes beginning on Monday, Dec. 5, thanks to the launch of a voluntary “Zero Hour” fitness program aimed at getting participants healthier and in a better mindset for learning.
Zero Hour is the brainchild of the MUHS Coordinated School Health Team, and is based on the premise that working out can lift people’s moods, sharpen their minds, improve their self-esteem, and help them get ready to learn.
MIDDLEBURY — New England Quality Service LLC (NEQS) is seeking zoning permission to acquire a large metal shredding device for use at its Wyre Wheel location at 4079 Route 7 south.
The shredder, according to company officials, will allow NEQS to recycle metal debris — including cars and washing machines — more quickly and efficiently.
Neighbors, meanwhile, told the Middlebury Development Review Board (DRB) on Monday that they want to make sure the new equipment doesn’t bring more noise and traffic to the area.
