Company Be to present 'Love Letters' in intimate setting

Posted on August 24, 2017 |
By Elsie Lynn Parini



n LoveLetters1087.jpg

Plays always take place on large, raised stages, complete with lights, sets and oversized velvet curtains, right? Wrong. There’s a whole genre of theater the Addison County scene has been missing that doesn’t need any of these frills. It’s black box theater.

Advice from a super mom: How to maintain a healthy, balanced and clean life

Meg Meyer family color.jpg

Workout for an hour every day. Eat healthy, unprocessed foods. Drink water. Be a supportive and responsible family member. Sounds like a pretty solid resolution-list made on January 1st, right? But how often does the workout get rescheduled, the apple replaced by a cookie, water for coffee and your attitude swing a bit out of control? Don’t worry, we’ve all been there.

Adagio, it means “slow tempo.” Camp Adagio, however, isn’t slow at all. For the past four years, Middlebury Community Music Center has offered a week-long day camp program to music lovers ages 8 and up. And they stay busy.

Playhouse in Middlebury to present one-man show about a Manchester murder

n Coffee COmpany Playhouse Russell Colvin_Photo by Riikka Olson.jpg

There was a murder in Manchester. You haven’t heard?

It was tragic really. Russell Colvin was beaten by his brothers-in-law and then went missing. For seven long years, the townspeople did nothing to find him; no search party, no investigation, nothing. That is until, Russell’s ghost started haunting the town.

Next Friday, Aug. 18, you can see Manchester’s very own unsolved murder case of 1812 reenacted by Oliver Wadsworth in a one-man show at Middlebury’s Vermont Coffee Company Playhouse, at 7:30 p.m.

Holmes' sweet home: Artist settles in Bristol

Posted on August 10, 2017 |
By Elsie Lynn Parini



Bristol 10 x12.jpg

Deborah Holmes is no stranger to Addison County. If you weren’t her neighbor in Weybridge or Shoreham, you might still know her from her watercolor paintings. Holmes has been painting the Vermont scene for the past 25 years.

Last Thursday, she turned the key in her new home on Garfield Street in Bristol. Now, most of us would probably take the next week or so to settle in, unpack a few boxes, put the kitchen together, see what’s volunteering out in the gardens. But that’s not what Holmes did.

She set up an exhibit at Art on Main.

Salisbury woman's handwoven, Shaker-style baskets inspired by nature

Raise your hand if you’ve ever taken your plastic laundry basket out to harvest your garden. No? How about a trash bag? Go ahead, no one’s looking... We’ve all been there. Sometimes it’s necessary; all that kale just plain doesn’t fit in the cute normal-sized garden basket.

Kristine “Kris” Myrick Andrews knows what you’re going through. She’s actually been there; which is why, 35 years ago, she decided to learn how to make her own baskets.

Middlebury to cast off construction blues with downtown block party

Posted on July 27, 2017 |
By Elsie Lynn Parini



There’s not a whole lot that’s fun about construction, especially when it tears up the heart of downtown Middlebury. Traffic will be detoured around the centre-ville starting today, Thursday, July 27, through Saturday, Aug. 5, which means, less traffic for all of our beloved shops on Main Street and Merchants Row.

For Middlebury filmmaker, swimming with sharks is all in a day's work

Posted on July 20, 2017 |
By Elsie Lynn Parini



Shark filmmaker great white shark_Fathom events shark week.jpg

Most of us have a healthy fear of the creatures lurking in the depths of the deep blue sea. And with good reason. We can’t breathe underwater; we can’t out-swim a predator; we don’t have sonar or any cool geo-location tech in our anatomy; and to top it off salt water tastes bad, stings your eyes and it’s often cold. Our squishy, land-loving, air-breathing bodies just aren’t made for the sea.

And I, for one, am quite content to keep my tasty little toes out of the salt water and away from any snapping teeth.

Middlebury's volunteer-powered music festival returns to the green

Fest LEAD FestDonahue1904.jpg

Summer is the time for music here in Addison County — well, all over Vermont really. It’s almost hard to go a weekend without finding yourself sprawled out on a blanket, nibbling some fresh strawberries and listening to some sort of live (probably folk) music. Then again, life gets busy; and maybe you haven’t had the chance to kick off those work-shoes, spread your toes in the fresh summer grass and get down with some tunes.
