ADDISON COUNTY — For unsuspecting children, a school bus turned blue overnight recently.
Here, in the parking lot of the Bingham Memorial School in Cornwall, Middlebury College junior Lena Jacobs has transformed a typical, yellow school bus into a mobile classroom that will soon depart Vermont for a summer-long trip across the United States.
In its new capacity, the bus will continue to transport youngsters, only now it will take them on the first leg of a trip toward achieving their dreams.
MIDDLEBURY — The Green Mountain Higher Education Consortium (GMHEC) has named Corinna Noelke of Middlebury as its first executive director to oversee the combined administrative cost-saving efforts of Champlain College, Saint Michael’s College and Middlebury College.
MIDDLEBURY — The beautiful sounds of ringing bells will fill the air again this summer, as the 30th annual Middlebury College Carillon Series treats audiences to free performances in and around Mead Memorial Chapel.
MIDDLEBURY — The 2014 Addison County American Legion team will be a tough act to follow. A number of veterans, including the program’s top two hurlers, graduated from the squad that came up just one run short in late July’s Vermont championship game.
Still, said Coach Mike Estey, seven veterans return, most of whom played significant roles a year ago, to provide leadership as AC tries for a top-four Northern Division finish and the playoff berth that comes with it.
VERMONT — The Vermont Sports Media Association recently named Middlebury College standout and Middlebury native Katie Ritter as its Female March Athlete of the Month.
Also honored in statewide balloting of VSMA members was Rice Memorial High School junior Kendrick Gray as the March Male Athlete of the Month.

The Ferrisburgh selectboard took the bold action of rejecting three of five proposed solar arrays filed this past month saying that the proposed locations would pose “an extreme visual impact.” But there’s a problem: the town doesn’t have a lot of say. As in the case of all Vermont solar arrays, towns can express their approval or disapproval, but the Public Service Board holds all the cards.
People should put the common good ahead of their self interests when it comes to something as serious as immunizations. Vermont just passed a law that prohibits philosophical exemptions. Hopefully, this law will provide protection in our community for the future. This might prevent parents from putting their child at risk as well as ill individuals, infants and the elderly who have a low immune system and cannot receive the vaccinations.
