MIDDLEBURY — Addison County schools are being invited to adopt a new calendar that would reshape the academic year in a manner that would shorten the traditional summer vacation.

Vermont driving bill tied to national immigration issue

Posted on April 25, 2013 |
By Xian Chiang-Waren



WASHINGTON, D.C. — Advocates for Vermont’s migrant laborers know that a driver’s license bill, such as the one being considered by the Vermont Legislature, is a short-term solution to what is ultimately a federal problem.

BRISTOL — The Bristol Recreation Club is wrapping up a much-needed renovation project to its grandstand and kitchen facility just in time for the Little League baseball season.

“We thought it was going to be a minor repair project to start with,” said Eric Carter, co-director of the Rec Club. “But when we tore off the siding, we realized that five big posts that hold up the building — two of them had about two feet rotting.”
