BRISTOL — On Feb. 10, a public meeting will be held in Bristol to discuss the town’s application to the Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation for two variances concerning the operation of its Pine Street landfill.

According to Town Administrator Bill Bryant, the state has changed the way in which it interprets its regulations regarding the operations of municipal landfills. The new interpretation would require the town of Bristol to build enough money into the budget to cover closure fund obligations — an amount that nears $1 million, Bryant said.

MIDDLEBURY — Though Middlebury College’s month-long J-Term has a reputation for being a rather laid-back time of year, the students heading up the college’s Solar Decathlon team have been even busier than usual this January.

Just last week, several students made the trip down to Orlando, Fla., for a Solar Decathlon conference and to attend the International Builders’ Show. And on Tuesday, the team gathered to host a fund-raising event at the Middlebury night spot 51 Main.

MIDDLEBURY — For Middlebury College senior Jenny Djupedal, the dying process has always been a bit of a mystery.

“My grandma passed away when  I was still in high school and she was on hospice when she died,” Djupedal said. “That was a really scary experience for me because I had never seen anybody die before.”

Djupedal is one of few young 20-somethings who has experienced death, and hospice, first-hand.

FERRISBURGH — Last Wednesday evening, the first fire chief of South Burlington Bud Monell handed Chief Bob Jenkins an antique fire alarm bell. Jenkins took the bell, and rang it twice.

“That’s dinnertime, he says,” Monell.

Just minutes before, as Monell stared out over the room of hundreds of volunteer firefighters, he became choked up. He was overwhelmed.

“I thought I would see just 40 or 50 or something like that,” he told the crowd, reminiscing about past dinners and former colleagues.
