EAST MIDDLEBURY — Eight parents worked all day Saturday to bring an East Middlebury baseball field back to life. They worked about 14 hours, but they were not alone. A lot of the children they were restoring the field for also helped out.

The field, located on Daisy Lane off Lower Plains Road, is now pretty much ready for use, according to Toby Rheaume, one of the fathers who worked on the field.

Rheaume and another father, Jason Larocque, came up with the idea to restore the East Middlebury field at a Memorial Day barbecue towards the end of Little League season.

Figures don't tell stories of catch, disaster

By Matt Dickerson



Those who spend time outdoors, even on traditional sports like hunting and fishing, spend a lot more time dealing with numbers than one might think. The sports require one to develop a certain reasoning ability with numerical values and concepts of scale.

Consider the sport of fishing. It requires, among other things, fishing line. And a successful angler needs to have a pretty good idea how strong 4-pound test line is, and what it’s like to cast with or tie knots with, and what the differences are between 4-, 8-, 12-, and 20-pound test.

Patchwork: Abundance brings new lessons from the garden

Posted on July 1, 2010 |
By Barbara Ganley



This early season seems extreme at our place, on the edge, with wild swings of weather and animal surprises: Orioles and bobolinks are absent, bees elusive, bats … gone. This morning an unusually large and noisy flock of crows fills the sky. I just know they’re planning to attack the raspberry patch once they’ve cleaned out the songbird nests.

Four years ago, I geared up to live in a land of dairy farms, maple syrup and cold winters. I had lived in California my whole life, and I was going to Middlebury College.

I soon found out that the winters here are indeed cold — quite cold — and I've enjoyed my share of covered bridges and berry picking. But over the years, I've come across quite a lot I didn't expect from Vermont.
