MIDDLEBURY — Sixteen-year-old Jack Nop has always been a huge fan of Lego toys and stop-motion film classics like “Wallace & Gromit” and “James & the Giant Peach.”

He decided to combine his two passions a few years ago under the banner of NopFilms to produce several stop-motion Lego videos that have become a fixture on YouTube. Jack’s older brother, Jake, and friend Peter Dickerson also collaborated on the fun filmmaking — which this week paid some big dividends.

By John Flowers



LynnCoale8176.jpg

MIDDLEBURY — Lynn Coale harkened back to late 2001, when he applied — almost as a lark — to become director of the Patricia Hannaford Career Center (PHCC). He was finishing his Ph.D. studies and checking out career opportunities in school administration.

MarkLavoie7808.jpg

Typically in an interview, the reporter asks a question and the subject answers (as best they can anyway). Well, thats not how it happened last week when I interviewed Mark Lavoie on the phone.
