'Night Fires' to be rekindled

Posted on December 9, 2010 |
By John Flowers

MIDDLEBURY — Abigail Nessen Bengsen, 27, recalled with glee her long involvement with “Night Fires,” a winter solstice celebration in which since 1982 local performers had pierced the year’s darkest night with a creative cornucopia of music, dance, poems and stories from throughout the world.

“My family was involved before I was born,” Bengsen said. “I grew up in it.”

But Night Fires went dark in 2007 when its creator, Lincoln’s Marianne Lust, needed a break from the arduous tasks of staging what was then a traveling performance.

Sudbury voters elect to keep school open

Posted on December 9, 2010 |
By Lee J. Kahrs



SUDBURY — The people of Sudbury have spoken, and the town elementary school will continue to teach all 20 students it serves.
Residents voted 110-39 to keep the k-6 Sudbury Country School open on Monday night following a two-hour information meeting held by the Sudbury school board. The vote was scheduled after a petition was presented to the board on Oct. 11 asking voters to consider shuttering the school due to falling enrollment and tuitioning students to other area schools.

By Tamara Hilmes



NEW HAVEN — A horse named J.Lo — and the two New Haven sisters who ride her — have been causing quite a stir on both the local and national horse show scene as of late.

The horse and her riders, Hailey and Brooke, daughters of Kelley and Scott Perlee of New Haven, took home the gold in six different classes at the 2010 Grand National and World Championship Morgan Horse Show, held in Oklahoma City in October. Horses in these competitions are judged primarily on appearance and gait.

Clippings: Youthful innocence is too stressful

Posted on December 9, 2010 |
By Trent Campbell



The Christmas season is here and as an adult I am supposed to be completely stressed out. Shopping, family gatherings, overeating and Yankee swaps are supposed to push me to the edge. I am supposed to feel bad that I am not a kid anymore and get depressed that my quest to recapture the innocence of my childhood will never be fulfilled. I say “Bah Humbug” to all that. The Christmas season actually makes me feel really good and, frankly, I think kids are the one who experience the most stress during the holidays.

Bristol youth put new spin on pageant

Posted on December 9, 2010 |
By Tamara Hilmes



BRISTOL — Though the Bristol Christmas pageant will include the traditional Mary, Joseph and baby Jesus, complete with manger and barnyard animals, this year’s pageant takes on a rather untraditional format.

Seventeen-year-old Thomas Ahern, who has been taking a film class at the Patricia A. Hannaford Career Center, volunteered to film and edit a video version of the Christmas story that will premiere at the First Baptist Church of Bristol on Sunday, Dec. 12, on 4:30 p.m.

Good day to root for my favorite teams

Posted on December 9, 2010 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



Monday proved to be a fine day to be a Boston sports fan, but only after plenty of drama.
Full disclosure: I spent the 1960s and most of the ’70s calling southeastern Massachusetts home. I developed a lifelong attachment to the Boston sports teams whether they were good — the Celtics and Bruins — or horrific — the Sox before 1967 and the Patriots for most of their existence.

Architect recalls Vt. vernacular

Posted on December 9, 2010 |
By Tamara Hilmes



MIDDLEBURY — Architect Turner Brooks grew up visiting the Ferrisburgh home of family friend Clement Hurd, illustrator of the beloved children’s book “Goodnight Moon.” Brooks still references the whimsical illustrations today when describing his own design work.

“There’s an incredible, strong juxtaposition of the intimate and the infinite,” he said during his recent lecture at Middlebury College, pointing during a slide showing to one of Hurd’s drawings of the bunny’s cozy bedroom with the lone window displaying the infinite night sky.
