MIDDLEBURY — For the first time since 1993, the Middlebury College men’s hockey team stands at 0-2. And those two losses came in Kenyon Arena on Friday and Saturday to Tufts and Connecticut College, respectively, teams against which the Panthers had a collective record of 38-8-2 entering the weekend.
But more puzzling to Middlebury Coach Bill Beaney than the results — Friday’s 3-0 loss to Tufts and Saturday’s 5-3 setback to Conn. College — was the way he said the Panthers played.
After Saturday’s loss, Beaney talked about what he saw as the Panthers’ lack of fire and effort.
MIDDLEBURY — Andrew Freeman willingly posted on Facebook footage of himself tumbling haphazardly over the Otter Creek Falls in downtown Middlebury in a kayak and is encouraging people to watch it and to tell their friends to do the same.
If he gets enough people to watch it — and like it — he’ll will a grant.
Freeman’s video, which he wrote and shot at various locations around Vermont on behalf of the Middlebury College Mountain Club (known also as MMC), was recently chosen as one of four finalists for fabric manufacturer Polartec’s “Made Possible” grant.
Women’s cross country wins title
WAVERLY, Iowa — The Middlebury College women’s cross country team on Saturday won its sixth NCAA Division III championship and the school’s 31st NCAA title since Middlebury and other NESCAC schools began competing in national tournaments in 1995.
Middlebury Union High School students slicked their hair back and donned poodle skirts to put on their fall production of the 1978 classic "Grease." Students took the stage on November 19, 20 and 21, while students from other area schools performed "Beauty and the Beast" and "Bye Bye Birdie."
Author’s note: This essay interrupts the sequence of expository essays on Plato’s Laws to answer an objection that questions the validity of the entire series. Transcendentalism is the name of an intellectual movement that flourished in the United States during the 19th century, especially in New England. Ralph Waldo Emerson and Henry David Thoreau are its leading proponents. Their writings range over a wide range of topics, literary, philosophical, religious, and political. The influence of Plato and Platonism is evident throughout them.
Otter Valley Union High School students and staff members put on classic musical, "Beauty and the Beast." Students took the stage on November 19, 20 and 21, while students from other area schools performed "Bye Bye Birdie" and "Grease."
Students at Mount Abraham Union High School dance, sing and swoon in this fall's production of "Bye Bye, Birdie." Students took the stage on November 19, 20 and 21, while students from other area schools performed "Beauty and the Beast" and "Grease."
It was a dark and stormy night.
Actually it wasn’t completely dark yet, and it wasn’t quite night. More like a dusky late afternoon, on the cusp of early evening. Just barely 6 p.m. And though it wasn’t exactly stormy, it was certainly as cold and breezy as one would expect in late Autumn in Vermont.
Those were the conditions when Mount Abraham Union High School junior Garth Wilson heard a knock on the door of his Bristol home. He opened it to find a congenial looking stranger standing on the porch.
