Opinion: Middlebury Airport improvement plan makes sense

Posted on December 15, 2014 |
By Art Remick



Remick letter image 2.jpg

In response to the article “Residents wary of airport upgrades” in the Dec. 4 Independent, safety at the Middlebury Airport is the focus of ongoing and upcoming improvements.

Several years ago, I attended a public meeting hosted by J&M Aviation at Middlebury Airport, where the Vermont Agency of Transportation announced many long term plans to upgrade safety at many state airports, including Middlebury Airport. The meeting was attended by many local residents, pilots, and several state representatives.

Editorial: Vermont bucks 'popular' politics to invest in its kids

What’s smart is to raise and spend money in ways that make our society stronger, enrich the individual and reduce the need for spending more on the back end.

Lazarus building to be demolished Jan. 19, 2015

Posted on December 11, 2014 |
By Addison Independent



MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury town officials have set Monday, Jan. 19, as the date on which work crews will demolish and remove the Lazarus building at 20 Main St.

Officials had considered removing the long-vacant structure this month, but abandoned that course in an effort to minimize disruption for downtown Middlebury merchants during the peak holiday shopping season.

“We thought it was a better plan for us to wait,” Middlebury Town Manager Kathleen Ramsay said.

Posted on December 11, 2014 |
By Zach Despart

Kirby said that in recent weeks the town has met with two separate manufacturers of a material used to cover landfills. Using material purchased from either of the firms, Omya and Resource Management Inc., would be substantially cheaper than covering the landfill with clay, as the town had initially planned to do.
