Posted on October 18, 2018 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — “Rose,” an Addison County woman in her 40s, is overcome with dread every time she looks at the calendar.

Closer to constantly looking over her shoulder for the man she’s been trying to escape from for around two years.

MiddPolice2963.jpg

MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury police got some reinforcements last week from an unlikely source — Ireland.

Actually, Constable Gavin Todd of the Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) wasn’t there to participate as much as to observe.

Todd’s four-day visit to Middlebury was courtesy of the International Police Association (IPA), an organization that sponsors exchanges between police departments throughout the world in an effort to foster friendship and co-operation among law enforcement officials.

MIDDLEBURY — Around 20 people took part in a special event held Oct. 12 at Frank Mahady Courthouse aimed at helping residents clear their criminal records of past misdemeanor charges, notably including possession of marijuana. It was the first of two-such events.

Nine participants at the Oct. 12 session availed themselves of free legal aid in filling out the requisite paperwork to get their records expunged of their past transgressions. Several local and statewide attorneys participated.

MIDDLEBURY — Officials at the organization Helping Overcome Poverty’s Effects, or HOPE, are renewing their call for food shelf donations that will be critical in feeding Addison County’s low-income residents until locally organized food drives replenish the cupboards later this fall.

Jeanne Montross, executive director of HOPE, first made the pitch in August — a time when food reserves are typically low. Unfortunately, that appeal didn’t resonate as well as Montross had hoped.

SALISBURY — Whenever people in Salisbury are stumped on a historical fact about their town — whether it be the original location of an old barn or the location of a founding citizen’s grave — they have invariably turned to their human encyclopedia.

“Ask Martha.”

Tragically, Martha Sullivan, owner of one of the longest civic resumes in Addison County, will no longer be able to serve as the go-to source for all things Salisbury.

DonKeeler2692.jpg

MIDDLEBURY — At age 76, Addison County Sheriff Don Keeler might not move around as well as he used to. But he still puts in a work day that could put a lot of nine-to-fivers to shame.

By day, he manages a workforce of 20 full- and part-time deputies, dispatchers and support staff.

By night, he can often be seen serving writs and other court paperwork to homes and businesses throughout the county.
