I will be voting for the new town hall plan. I have heard the pro and con voices — many measured and thoughtful — and none of the alternatives being offered stack up financially, practically and aesthetically for me. To my pocketbook, to my reason and to my eye, this deal is a win-win-win.
I was on my way in to Middlebury Feb. 14 along with my son and two dogs on Route 30 in Cornwall. I hit a patch of ice, skidded across the road and rolled over the car.??Three people (a couple and a nurse) stopped immediately and came to my rescue. The man was able to open my car door and release my seatbelt. They comforted me, my son, and dogs and kept us safe until the ambulance and police arrived.
I’m responding to Raymond Reed’s letter published in the Feb. 12 edition of the Brandon Reporter and Feb. 13 edition of the Addison Independent.
I’m concerned about the gas pipeline scheduled to be laid under Lake Champlain.
I’m sure by now everyone has heard about the polluted water in Charleston, W.V. What if there were a gas leak in Lake Champlain? Our communities who get their drinking water from the lake would have no water to drink, etc. There is a huge price to be paid if we put the gas line in the lake and there is any kind of problem.
The archival photos that depict the area around Twilight Hall before the construction of the gym and the high school buildings are what reinforced my decision to vote in favor of the selectboard plan. That historical, aesthetically pleasing vista would be possible again, for everyone in town to enjoy.
We are writing in support of the proposed town office/recreation center plan that we have the opportunity to vote on Tuesday, March 4. We have been in need of new town offices for many years and now we have a viable plan to vote on. Please vote YES on March 4.
As downtown business and real estate owners — but without a Middlebury vote on Town Meeting Day — we strongly urge all UD-3 (Middlebury, Cornwall, Weybridge, Shoreham, Bridport, Ripton, Salisbury) residents to attend the Feb. 25 meeting and vote your support for the board to enter into lease discussions for the new municipal gym building.
