Behind the big, red nose: Meet a real clown

Posted on March 2, 2017 |
By Elsie Lynn Parini



Woody Keppel Wellness4599.jpg

VERMONT — Clowns are creepy. Most of us are afraid of them, even if we don’t technically have Coulrophobia.

“I’m afraid of that kind of clown, too,” said Charlotte resident Woody Keppel, who’s been clowning since the early ‘80s. “Clowning is a misrepresented term... We’re not all the big Bozo, Ringling, scary clowns.”

So what kind of clown is Keppel? Think of him as an “eccentric character” having fun.

n MaryHoganKids LEAD HZ 8956  .jpg

MIDDLEBURY — Mary Hogan Elementary School students Dahlia Harrison and Nell Brayton learned a couple of important lessons during the past month that can’t be taught in the classroom.

First, they received proof positive that the Middlebury community’s generosity knows no bounds.

Second, they learned about the power of federal officials to derail that generosity from its intended target — in this case, Syrian refugees.

19th century feminist to visit 21st century Middlebury

Posted on February 27, 2017 |
By David Weinstock



American Radical preview Kate.jpg

Before actor, playwright and time-traveler Kate Redway decided to transform herself into the 19th century feminist Elizabeth Cady Stanton, she had never heard of the woman or her crucial role in the battle for women’s rights. But once she learned of Stanton’s enormous influence on the movement, she resolved to bring her story back to life for today’s audience. You can see the result on stage at Town Hall Theater in Middlebury, when Middlebury Actors Workshop presents her play “American Radical,” opening on March 3.

MIDDLEBURY — It’s been a 19-year climb for Middlebury Mountaineer, but it has finally reached its desired summit of a prime retail location on Middlebury’s Main Street.

Middlebury Mountaineer co-owner Steve Atocha said on Thursday the store will soon move from its current spot at 2 Park St. to its new home at 56 Main St., recently occupied by Clementine. The new storefront will give Middlebury Mountaineer greater visibility and more walk-by traffic, Atocha said.

Posted on February 27, 2017 |
By John Flowers

BRIDPORT — Bridport now can rightfully lay claim to the nickname of “Bridgeport.”

That’s because the community is confronting repairs to no less than four of its local bridges, beginning this March with the Sunderland Bridge on Crown Point Road.

Bridport residents on Town Meeting Day will be asked to spend up to $325,000 in town surplus funds to repair the 52-foot-long Sunderland Bridge, which straddles the western branch of Dead Creek on Crown Point Road, near its intersection with Basin Harbor Road.

MIDDLEBURY — There are plenty of reasons to love Addison County. We’ve got sprawling farmland, a giant summer fair, historic villages, a vibrant shiretown, lakes for swimming and mountains for hiking — you name it. But there’s one thing our beloved home has sorely lacked.

Washington County’s got the Mad Taco. Chittenden County’s got El Gato Cantina and El Corjito. Windsor County’s got the Mojo Cafe. So what can Addison County residents do when we crave spicy peppers and guacamole?
