While it is absolutely true that Bill James had a wonderful time riding in my little car in the 4th of July parade for the day before his 105th birthday, this year he was not the Grand Marshal of the parade as stated in the front page picture. The Grand Marshal of our parade for 2016 was Dick Lathrop, a much loved man who rode in the coach and was so honored for the many things he and his family have done for the Town of Bristol. Thank you Dick and congratulations!
Gun owners, we have to visit the voting booth to repeal on July 19, 2016, a stupid ordinance that has been passed by a few with no prior of what a gun owner’s ethics are. Possibly some pampered people hear a gunshot and freak out muttering “oh my oh my oh my.” We gun owners have responsibilities not to fire our gun unless in a place to do so that we know where the bullet will end its flight path.
NEW HAVEN — Taborri Bruhl had figured the highlight of his summer might be co-leading an educational trip to Spain with students from Rutland High School, where he teaches economics.
But a brief phone call from Addison County Democrats has shaken up his summer plans — and perhaps his professional life for years to come.
With a nudge from his party colleagues, Bruhl has decided to belatedly enter the race for the Addison-5 House seat that represents the towns of Bridport, New Haven and Weybridge. He will face veteran Rep. Harvey Smith, R-New Haven.
MIDDLEBURY — Wetlands like the Cornwall swamp and floodplains like those near the Salisbury flats have saved the town of Middlebury between $126,000 and $450,000 a year in flood damage over the past 80 years, plus up to $1.8 million when Tropical Storm Irene struck in 2011, according to a unique University of Vermont study recently made public.
BRISTOL — Addison Northeast Supervisory Union officials next Monday will officially unveil a proposed blueprint for uniting all of the district’s schools into a single entity governed by one board and financed through a global budget. The July 18 forum will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Lincoln Community School.
MIDDLEBURY — Some of the most beautiful flowers can bloom in the darkness.
Klara Calitri will show you.
Just give her some paint and a brush and her fragile, diminutive, 93-year-old hands will send water lilies floating across the canvass and help some scarlet geraniums stretching toward the sky. She’ll give them friends, such as a contemplative cat or some determined dragonflies.
MIDDLEBURY — Members of the Congregational Church of Middlebury have logged a lot of miles during their annual service trips to such places as New Orleans, West Virginia and Missouri to help rebuild communities torn asunder by natural disasters and poverty.
MIDDLEBURY — Coffee and theater enthusiasts can now blend their two passions at a single address — 1197 Exchange St., where Vermont Coffee Co. (VCC) has just opened its new playhouse.
The new playhouse is the brainchild of longtime local thespian Deb Gwinn and her husband, VCC founder and CEO Paul Ralston.
Members of Addison County’s thriving arts community are already familiar with the investments that Ralston and Gwinn have made in the local theater scene.
