MIDDLEBURY — Scott Gemignani is in the business of magic and fantasy; his downtown Middlebury game store, Tinker & Smithy, sells it by the box.

But some might say the latest trick up his sleeve could compete with anything that could be scripted in DungeonQuest, Battlelore, or War of the Ring.

He’s attempting to conjure the purchase of the former Ben Franklin store property at 63 Main St. and transform it into a mixture of retail, arcade, bowling alley, burger joint and affordable housing.

By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — The Addison Northwest School District Board on Thursday unanimously approved a motion that will allow ANWSD administrators to make unspecified district-wide personnel cuts in order to stay within the $22,139,341 budget district voters approved on Town Meeting Day, 672-666.
