NEW HAVEN — The town of New Haven will hold a Spooktacular full of Halloween fun on Saturday, Oct. 24, from 4:30-9 p.m. at the New Haven Congregational Church and on the town green.
The event kicks off with “trunk-and-treat” car decorating from 4:30-5:30 p.m. in the church parking lot, located on Town Hill Road across from the town green. From 5:30-6:30 p.m., trunk-and-treaters can come see the decorated vehicles and get candy from tricked-out trunks. There will be a people’s choice prize give for the best vehicle.
VERGENNES — American Legion Auxiliary Unit 14 will hold its annual Trunk or Treat and Costume Karaoke Dance Party on Sunday, Oct. 25, from 1-3 p.m. at the American Legion Post 14 in Vergennes.
World-renowned pipa player Wu Man and the Shanghai Quartet will blend the sounds of China and Western string quartet in an unforgettable evening of music at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday in Robison Hall (the Concert Hall) at Middlebury College’s Mahaney Center for the Arts.
BRISTOL — In the end, 70 minutes of high school field hockey in Bristol on Friday settled nothing, except that maybe both host Mount Abraham and Middlebury wanted to win and might be ready for this week’s playoffs.
The result was a 0-0 tie that left the Division II Eagles at 4-6-4, including a 2-1-4 record in the past seven games. They will earn the No. 4 seed in D-II and host a quarterfinal, unofficially as of Sunday against Spaulding (7-5-2). The Vermont Principals Association was set to make playoff pairings final on Monday morning.
VERGENNES — The Middlebury Union High School girls’ soccer team needed two late goals from a senior playing a new position to overcome a spirited effort by host Vergennes on Saturday, 2-1.
The Commodores took a first-half lead on a goal by 8th-grade JV call-up Emily Rooney and had several chances to build on that lead, but the Tigers’ second-half edge in possession ultimately led to two Kelsey Smith strikes and the victory.
MIDDLEBURY — As the pace and scale of solar development has accelerated in Addison County, communities have become increasingly concerned about how to regulate development so as to balance the need for renewable energy with the desire to preserve Vermont’s rural, historic and natural landscapes. And the pressure is intensifying as the industry accelerates movement toward Vermont's goal of getting 90 percent of its energy from renewables by 2050.
MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury officials are seeking public feedback to come up with some traffic calming measures for three problem roads in town.
At issue is a traffic calming study coordinated by consultants Dubois & King, thanks to a grant through the Addison County Regional Planning Commission. The town chose, as study subjects, three different examples of local roads — and not necessarily those that see the most traffic, explained Middlebury selectboard Chairman Dean George.
