BRISTOL/VERGENNES — At halftime of a hard-fought boys’ basketball game at Vergennes Union High School this winter between the Commodores and visiting rival Mount Abraham, a half-dozen students from each of the opposing fan sections got up and gathered behind the east basket.

No, it wasn’t some sort of confrontation. They smiled, high-fived and quickly got down to a serious and seriously loud game of bottle flip.

MIDDLEBURY — The deposits into Stanford Pritchard’s National Bank of Middlebury account arrive at random hours, but usually in the middle of the night.

Of course, that makes perfect sense. The funds come from a literary agency in Seoul, South Korea, and the day’s quietest hours in small-town Vermont are the busiest in a hub of Asian commerce.

By Andy Kirkaldy



MIDDLEBURY — The Middlebury selectboard on Tuesday revisited the upcoming effort to replace the downtown rail bridges and rebuild the railroad through downtown Middlebury, a state and federally funded project expected to run from 2018 to 2020 and include major disruption to the downtown in its final summer.

Chairman Brian Carpenter said the latest he heard from the Agency of Transportation is that agency officials are leaning toward installing temporary bridges sooner, rather than later, in order to make the entire project run more smoothly.
