Health insurance registration deadline looms

Posted on November 9, 2017 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — Those seeking to obtain insurance through Vermont Health Connect (VHC) or who want to modify the plan in which they are currently enrolled have to act fast.

That’s because state and federal officials have cut this year’s VHC “open enrollment period” in half, from 12 weeks to a six-week period that began on Nov. 1 and will end on Dec. 15.

At stake is health care coverage for 2018 — Vermonters who miss the Dec. 15 deadline might have to wait until 2019 to get their coverage, according to state officials.

Duty pushed Art Howard during his years in the Navy

Posted on November 9, 2017 |

MIDDLEBURY — Art Howard knew at an early age he was going to join the military. It was something that previous generations of his family had done, and he wasn’t going to be the exception to the rule.

Therefore at the age of 17 Howard coaxed his folks into green-lighting his entry into the U.S. Navy. He hadn’t even graduated from Dover (N.H.) High School yet. When he had secured his diploma at age 18, Howard shipped off to basic training with the thought he might further his experience and interest in communications.
