The Beauty is in the Particulars

By Matt Dickerson

An ESPN talk show host recently complained about the sport of baseball. He argued that what mattered in sports were memories, particulars, and memories of particulars, and that baseball was all about numbers. Actually, he sounded slightly less articulate than that, and somewhat louder, angrier and whinier. Nonetheless, I agreed with the first half of what he said: Beauty is in the particulars.

Gov. Douglas unveils a new budget counter-proposal

By JOHN FLOWERS

MIDDLEBURY — Gov. James Douglas on Tuesday released his own proposed fiscal year 2010 state budget to counter the $4.5 billion spending plan he vowed last week to veto, but it appears as though the counter-proposal will not avert a legislative override vote slated for June 2.

The Middlebury Republican’s plan recommends further cuts, account transfers and raising $13 million in new revenues — roughly half the amount the General Assembly had endorsed to help bridge what had been a looming $281 million shortfall.

By ANDY KIRKALDY

MIDDLEBURY — In a Tuesday duel between high school softball teams enjoying solid springs, host Middlebury claimed 6-3 win over Mount Abraham, leaving both teams’ records at 7-4.

The win avenged the Tigers’ 14-6 loss at Mount Abe last spring that had continued the Eagles’ recent success against MUHS.

Winning pitcher Lea Gipson, a junior who allowed two hits and five walks and struck out six, didn’t have an exactly accurate memory of the 2008 score, but summed up the Tigers’ feelings on Tuesday’s win perfectly.

New arts and crafts school to fill Frog Hollow void

By JOHN FLOWERS

MIDDLEBURY — When the Vermont State Craft Center (VSCC) at Frog Hollow closed its doors early this year, the Middlebury area not only lost a gallery in which to display local artists’ wares, but also a school at which students could learn how to create their own arts and crafts.

The past few months have seen a homeless VSCC offer some classes at temporary venues. But now five longtime VSCC associates have joined forces to create a new “Middlebury Studio School Inc.” that they hope will fill the arts education void left by VSCC.

City officials endorse senior housing plan

By ANDY KIRKALDY

VERGENNES — Two decisions by Vergennes officials in the past two weeks brought a proposed 25-unit senior housing plan on Armory Lane closer to reality. The main applicants are Housing Vermont Inc. and the Addison County Community Trust.

On May 4, the city’s development review board approved the plan for the housing, which includes a library, a “country kitchen area” that could host 40 people, and an activity area large enough for 60 people.
