Thank you for this opportunity to write in support of the Early Childhood Educators of Vermont. Our state is fortunate to have a network of agencies, homes and private centers that provide care, nurturing and education to the state’s youngest citizens. The persons who work with our children in these settings are mostly women, and though the work they do is arguably the most important work done in our state, they typically are not well-paid, minimum wage being the standard for these jobs.
This display is part of a gingerbread “house” exhibit at the Vermont Folklife Center in Middlebury. The whimsical and beautiful creations will be on display through Saturday.
BRISTOL — Bristol resident and former Marine John Shepard had always hoped to take his daughter Natasha, 13, to visit the North Carolina coast, the territory he loved when he served in the U.S. Marine Corps in the 1980s.
According to Shepard’s ex-wife and still good friend Marion Martin, a Mineville, N.Y., resident, John and Natasha planned to go this coming November.
But that was before Shepard’s health took a dramatic turn for the worse.
“He won’t make it. He’s fading fast every day,” Martin said.
MIDDLEBURY — Bread Loaf Corp. estimates it would cost approximately $5.8 million to renovate the Middlebury municipal building and gym at their current location at the intersection of College and South Main streets.
MIDDLEBURY — The Middlebury selectboard on Tuesday voted 4-3 in favor of using a Creek Road parcel as the location for a new recreation center, a vote preceded by fierce and at times acrimonious debate among members about a site selection process that has increasingly come under fire.
MIDDLEBURY — The Middlebury Town Office & Recreation Steering Committee on Tuesday morning voted 7-1, with two abstentions, to recommend to the local selectboard that a new, 11,500-square-foot recreation center be built on a 2.4-acre parcel off Creek Road owned by the UD-3 school district.
BRISTOL — The Bristol Planning Commission on Tuesday took a look at the final two proposed sites for a new firehouse and determined that one aligns with the town plan and the other does not.
Commissioners voted for the West Street site, and against the North Street site.
The group was not comparing the two sites against each other, but rather evaluating each individually according to their adherence to the Bristol Town Plan. Only the selectboard has the power to choose a site.
