PANTON — In September 2011, about a dozen Panton residents voted at a special meeting not to spend $70,000 to fix both Town Hall’s roof and the building’s cupola with the cupola in place, opting instead to spend about $32,000 to remove the cupola and fix the roof.
Since then, the cupola has been sitting on blocks behind and to the left of Town Hall, waiting while Panton officials have understandably dedicated limited town funds to more pressing needs.

Our trip through life is marked by milestones: births, graduations, marriages and deaths…. But deaths seem to color the world with deeper and more lasting tones. It’s as if grief draws a line that slices our lives into “before” and “after” in the space of a single breath. A line of symmetry, where the loved ones left living find themselves in the same environment, with the same job and friends, even shopping in the same grocery store as they did “before,” yet nothing is the same.
Thomas Dunne’s wood-turning studio is tucked away behind his home on South Street in Middlebury. Most days he can be found bent over the lathe, sawdust floating up around him as he scores away coils of fresh yellow maple from the block spinning under his nose.
