MIDDLEBURY — Lincoln native Grace Experience, who stars in the upcoming Middlebury Actors Workshop production of “The Turn of the Screw,” grew up in a swirl of creative energy. Her mother (Victoria Blewer) works with paint and photographs, her father (Chris Bohjalian) with words. But when she talks about childhood inspiration Grace Experience talks about discipline.

“My parents get up early and do the work,” she said. “It’s not that loosey-goosey artistic style you hear about.”

HalloweenGuy4024.jpg

MIDDLEBURY — October 31 is right around the corner. For some, this means turning out all the lights, heading upstairs with a book and ignoring the witches, wild animals and super heroes prowling the streets for candy. But that’s lame, and boring.

Witches invade a New Haven church

HauntedChurch2954.jpg

NEW HAVEN — In one of the most famous images associated with the Salem Witch Trials, lightning strikes through the fanlight window of an austere New England meeting room, unchaining a woman accused of witchcraft and knocking her inquisitor to the floor.

As soon as the above-ground portion of most perennials have died back to the ground, their roots will become dormant. Thus late fall is actually the least stressful time to divide and rearrange our garden plants.
