MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury Actors Workshop’s fall production is an intensely lyrical American play, Paul Zindel’s Pulitzer Prize-winning “The Effect of Gamma Rays on Man-in-the-Moon Marigolds.” Despite that sci-fi sounding title taken from the name of a science fair project, the play is about a New York family caught in poverty and despair.
MIDDLEBURY — The Vermont Agency of Agriculture, Food & Markets (VAAFM) announces the transfer of its mobile flash freeze unit to the Patricia A.
