Barbara Hofer is having more fun than the average college professor. With her new book featured on “The Early Show” and in USA Today, who can blame her?

Tiger: What will happen to Tiger Woods?
Two weeks ago, he finished 78th in a field of 80 in the Bridgestone Classic, a tournament he had won four years in a row prior to this year. Earlier in August, he tied for 28th place in the PGA Championship, his second worst showing in a major tournament in 12 years. Last weekend was better, a tie for 12th at the Barclay’s Championship. But still ... Tiger Woods: middle of the pack?

MIDDLEBURY — The Aug. 24 primary provided a lot of fireworks, but Addison County saw arguably its biggest political bombshell detonate two days after the election.
Rep. Steve Maier, D-Middlebury, officially withdrew from the Nov. 2 general election ballot on Thursday, thereby giving the Middlebury Democratic Committee seven days in which to pick someone to run in his stead.
MIDDLEBURY — People visiting the Frank Mahady Courthouse in Middlebury will soon notice some subtle changes in how Addison County’s court system is organized and conducts business.
And eventually, people will notice some big changes — including the ability to file their complaints electronically and potentially see court offices consolidated within a single floor of the 40,000-square-foot courthouse building.
