Local Jewish community marks 30th anniversary

MIDDLEBURY — It was back in June of 1980 that Eli Olinick celebrated what is believed to have been the first Bar Mitzvah ever in Addison County, held in Middlebury College’s Warner Hemicycle.

The traditional Jewish ceremony would prove more than Olinick’s symbolic transition to religious adulthood. It would become the catalyst for the organization of Addison County’s Jewish community, Havurah, which this year is marking its 30th anniversary.

UD-3 board hears from staff, public on budget

Posted on October 21, 2010 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — The UD-3 board on Tuesday heard from more than a dozen teachers and community members who requested that any cuts to the 2011-2012 budget not affect direct educational services to students.

Some advised the board to target extra-curricular activities and administrative positions in the Middlebury district, while others suggested school directors put away the budget cutting knife altogether.

Posted on October 21, 2010 |
By John Flowers



WILLISTON — For the past six years, Rep. Steve Maier has been helping shape the state’s health care reform policy from the Statehouse chambers.

The Middlebury Democrat will now implement that policy in line with the new state job he officially started on Monday: The Department of Vermont Health Access’s (VHA) “Health Care Reform - Health Information Technology Integration Manager.”

“I’m pretty excited to get started,” Maier, 54, said during a phone interview during his first day on the job with the VHA.

Swept away: Couple weds at 10 on 10/10/10

web_wedding6421.jpg

EAST MIDDLEBURY — An ideal pairing of partners is often referred to as a “match made in heaven.”

Jaclynne Reed and Frank Wootten can truly lay claim to that maxim in light of an airborne exchange of vows this past Sunday, in a celestial ceremony that was also heavily steeped in numerology. The couple has the interesting distinction of having been married on the 10th day of the 10th month in the 10th year of this century at 10 a.m. at 10,000 feet.

Neither bride nor groom is likely to forget her or his anniversary date anytime soon.

Salmon tries to 'shine light' on Vt. finances

Posted on October 14, 2010 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — Calculators, pens, pencils and computers are common tools of the trade among auditors.

Vermont State Auditor Thomas Salmon said he uses an extra, figurative tool in his arsenal: A spotlight.

“You’ve got to have a guy like me that wants to facilitate turning the lights on,” Salmon, who is running for re-election this Nov. 2, said during a Monday interview at the Addison Independent.

The 47-year-old Republican from St. Johnsbury faces opposition from Doug Hoffer of Burlington, who defeated former state Auditor Ed Flanagan in a Democratic primary contest in August.

Clippings: Graduation day arriving too soon

Posted on October 14, 2010 |
By John Flowers



I’m 48 and I’m not quite ready to graduate from high school.

No, I’m not a perennial flunk-out artist, nor am I an old-timer seeking to complete an education suspended years ago.

Rather, I am a parent of a high school senior — the last in our household — scheduled to earn his diploma next spring. The stark reality of that momentous occasion just dawned on me this month, and I selfishly wish graduation day weren’t so imminent.

Leahy tries to secure health care waiver

Posted on October 11, 2010 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — U.S. Sen. Patrick Leahy, Vermont’s senior senator, said if re-elected next month he will continue to work to secure a waiver for Vermont to enact more sweeping health care reforms sooner than the 2017 timeline mandated under current federal law.

“The way the law is written almost begs for some areas of experimentation, provided you still have the basic health protections that were written into it,” the Middlesex Democrat said during a recent interview at the Addison Independent.
