Middlebury, shopkeeper settles salvia court case

Posted on December 30, 2010 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — The town of Middlebury and a former storeowner have settled a longstanding legal dispute relating to local sales of the herb salvia divinorum.

Middlebury has agreed to withdraw a 2007 emergency health order barring the now-defunct Emporium Tobacco and Gift Shop from selling salvia. At the same time, former Emporium storeowner James Stone has agreed to drop his Vermont Supreme Court action against the town in connection with that 2007 order.

Tiger boys settle for dramatic tie in title game

MIDDLEBURY — There’s more than one way to look at the Middlebury Union High School boys’ hockey team’s Tuesday game against Lake Placid in the final of the Tigers’ Duke Nelson/Wendy Forbes Memorial Hockey Tournament.

In the books it does down as a 4-4 tie that leaves the Tigers with a 3-1-1 record. But the Blue Bombers earned the tournament title at the Memorial Sports Center with a 2-1 win in the shootout that followed a scoreless sudden-death overtime.

Clippings: Happy greetings from a gruff codger

Posted on December 30, 2010 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



“Have a happy, happy!”

The emphasis was always on the second “happy” and it was said, back in the mid-’70s, by my climbing buddy’s dad. He loved saying it, as if it were his own contribution to the nation’s lexicon — “Have a happy, happy!”

It was a New Year’s Day greeting, of course, although Lou said it throughout the year whenever the mood struck him, which wasn’t, by the way, that often.

Local option tax on target to pay off Middlebury bridge

Posted on December 30, 2010 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury’s local option tax has generated $1,335,614 in its first two full years of collection — an average of $667,807 annually, which town officials said puts the community comfortably on pace to retire the 30-year-bond for the Cross Street Bridge.

Figures provided by the town of Middlebury show the 1-percent tax on rooms, meals, sales and alcohol generated $202,515 during the third quarter of 2010. That’s the strongest quarter ever, and well ahead of the $186,917 in taxes generated during the same quarter of 2009.

Snowshoeing brings back memories

Posted on December 30, 2010 |
By Matt Dickerson



Of snow, snowshoes,
beginnings and endings

It was Christmas Eve. The end of the year was approaching determinedly, unavoidably, quickly. But the day was lovely. The sun was up, and the temperature rose to the mid-20s — comfortable weather for snowshoes. Fresh powdery snow blanketed the woods.

Around the bend: Can't teach an old Santa new tricks

Posted on December 30, 2010 |
By Jessie Raymond



For couples with conflicting spending habits, the end of the Christmas shopping season always comes as a relief.

With these couples, one partner dislikes shopping and hates to waste money on overpriced gifts. This person declares solemnly, “Christmas isn’t about presents; it’s about family spending time together.”

That’s a lie, of course. But for people like me, who get chest pains at the thought of paying $119.95 for a set of Legos that will fit in a shoebox, it’s all we have.

ADDISON COUNTY — Addison County residents who waited until the week before Christmas to buy a tree found it a hard task this year.

Most area vendors reached the end of their Christmas tree supply last weekend, and by Sunday many had closed their doors for the season.

“It was a very early, very fast season,” said Cheryl Werner, who with her family runs Werner Tree Farm in Middlebury.
