Deborah Holmes_1546.jpg

MIDDLEBURY — The distinguished watercolor painter Deborah Holmes is planning a return to Addison County this summer, after a five-year relocation to Greensboro, in the Northeast Kingdom.

The move north was inspired by a longing to produce a collection of work documenting family farms in Vermont. Holmes, who lived in Weybridge for more than two decades before moving to Orleans County, worked on more than 60 paintings of 12 farms in the Northeast Kingdom, inspired by the buildings, animals and pastoral landscapes.

MIDDLEBURY — Beginning with its avant-garde, Frank Lloyd Wrightian architectural design in 1955 and following through to a recent extensive energy retrofit, one home in Middlebury — at 17 Chipman Heights — continues to lead the way for new developments in residential construction and design.

Seniors and kids Everybody wins_0704.JPG

ADDISON COUNTY — According to a study conducted by the United Nations Population Fund, almost one in 10 people on Earth are over the age of 60. But by 2050, that will jump to one in five.

Many of those older adults are staying young at heart — and helping mold the youngest generation — by providing more and more childcare for grandchildren and by volunteering for programs that bring them into contact with the children in the community.
