I was at a dinner event this week with about 20 people. We gathered around a large table. As often happens, there were several conversations going on during the meal, and then again after the meal as we mingled in different groups as guests slowly rose and prepared to depart. Two of the conversations I took part in were prompted by very different topics and involved different people, but took an interesting turn toward a common theme.
ADDISON COUNTY — Nineteen members of the four area union high schools earned postseason honors from either the Lake Division or the Marble Valley League’s B Division.
Earning first-team Lake honors were senior Charlie Meyer and junior Owein LaBarr from Mount Abraham and senior Drew Barnicle from Middlebury. Otter Valley senior Collin Eugair was named an MVL B Division all-star.
MEDFORD, Mass. — Host Tufts on Saturday edged the Middlebury College football team, 31-28, in the teams’ final game of the season. The Jumbos improved to 6-2, their best record since 2001, with their first win vs. Middlebury in 15 tries, while the Panthers finished at 5-3, their 10th straight winning season.

Troopers located the accused, identified as 46-year-old Thomas Andrew Dague at his Route 7 residence and took him into custody without incident.
Police did not say what he was wanted for in Ohio, but they did lodge him at the Marble Valley Correctional Facility, bail was set at $50,000.
In other activity in the past week, state police:

MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury College junior Leo Trotz-Liboff was in a Paris bar near the Bastille metro station with friends last Friday night when his phone rang.
“A Middlebury (College) staff worker called me and said that there was a shooting in a restaurant,” said Trotz-Liboff, a Classics major spending the semester at Middlebury’s study abroad program in the French capital.
ADDISON COUNTY — Helping Overcome Poverty’s Effects (HOPE) and other area groups are launching their annual efforts to make sure all Addison County families are able to enjoy a nice meal on Thanksgiving and ensure that all local children have at least one present to open this holiday season.
