Starksboro is rallying around its historic meeting house

Starksboro mtg house_4685.jpg

STARKSBORO — During a tour of the Starksboro Village Meeting House last Thursday the sun cut through the clouds and struck the south side of the building full-on. In the cold quiet sanctuary, whose stained-glass windows converted that sunlight into a sudden holy glow, it almost felt like the historic old structure had taken a breath.

Only a tiny bit of poetic license is needed to suggest — at least after this year’s town meeting — that this was a sigh of relief.

MIDDLEBURY — The Middlebury selectboard will soon turn its attention to crafting an ordinance banning single-use plastic bags from being used for local business transactions.

But some local businesses aren’t waiting for a new law; they’re already taking steps to discourage customers from relying on plastic bags to carry out their purchases.

The Independent on Feb. 25 reported on Buy Again Alley’s transition to paper bags and reusable bags.

MIDDLEBURY — On Saturday, March 2, Jeff Fortin stood to speak at Monkton’s 2019 town meeting. “How many of you here are under the age of 40?” he asked. 

About six people raised their hands. 

“In 30 years, if this continues, will we have a town meeting?” Fortin asked.

It’s a question that others in Vermont are asking, particularly in light of trends that take some voting out of the meetings and put them into voting at polls.

Midd cop Fisher to regite_2876 CMYK.jpg

MIDDLEBURY — Officer Scott Fisher used to keep multiple police uniforms in his closet.

And not spare uniforms for a single department.

For a time during the mid-1980s, Fisher was working shifts for the Middlebury, Vergennes and Vermont State Police departments.

It was all he could do to keep his own officer identification numbers straight when they came across his radio.

Give him a little time, and he still remembers them.

It was 482 with VSP; 2588 with Middlebury; 705 with Vergennes.
