MIDDLEBURY — At Town Hall Theater’s 10th birthday party this summer, incoming executive director Mark Bradley took the stage, introduced himself and issued an open invitation for coffee and chatting.

“I have had a lot of coffees since then,” said Bradley, who joined THT in August and sees caffeinated confabbing as part and parcel of the job.

ADDISON COUNTY — The weather, as usual, wrote the complex story of this year’s apple season.

Take, for example, the beloved McIntosh, Vermont’s most popular variety, which accounts for roughly half the state’s annual production.

At a Cornwall orchard, this summer’s drought reduced the size and number of Macs (though not their quality), and a warm spell in September drastically reduced their picking season.

In Ferrisburgh, an early spring deep-freeze damaged the crop pre-blossom.

MIDDLEBURY — A day after the midterm elections, with conversations about voting rights still front and center, civil rights activist DeRay McKesson took the mic at Middlebury College’s Wilson Hall and asked his audience a simple question:

“What can you buy for $300?”

Answers from the capacity crowd included “books,” “a television” and “sports-game tickets.” One student’s answer — “a hamster” — occasioned good-natured laughter throughout the hall.

MIDDLEBURY — The night after civil rights activist DeRay McKesson spoke at Middlebury College, his ideas were very much on people’s minds as nearly 200 gathered downtown to protest President Trump’s firing of U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions. The firing and appointment of administration loyalist Matthew Whitaker was widely seen as a move endangering a Justice Department investigation by independent counsel Robert Mueller into the Trump administration’s connection to Russian interference with the 2016 presidential election.
