Bristol board: Closing landfill will cost less

Posted on December 11, 2014 |
By Zach Despart



BRISTOL — Town Administrator Therese Kirby at a Holley Hall meeting on Monday evening gave the Bristol selectboard some promising news as the town tries to find funding to close the municipal landfill by the end of 2016.

Kirby said that in recent weeks the town has met with two separate manufacturers of a material used to cover landfills. Using material purchased from either of the firms, Omya and Resource Management Inc., would be substantially cheaper than covering the landfill with clay, as the town had initially planned to do.

MIDDLEBURY — More than 100 students, faculty and staff stood, silently, arms raised in front of Mead Chapel on the campus of Middlebury College Monday afternoon.

The time was 1:01 p.m., the same time of day that Michael Brown was shot dead by a police officer on Aug. 9 in Ferguson, Mo. The shooting of the 18-year-old black man reignited a national discussion on racism and police brutality, especially after a grand jury last week declined to bring charges against the officer, Darren Wilson.

Posted on December 1, 2014 |
By Zach Despart



BRISTOL — The Have A Heart Food Shelf has had a great holiday season so far, in no small part due to a recent upgrade that expanded the Bristol nonprofit’s storage space and a successful food drive sponsored by area fire department.

“It’s filling right up,” said food shelf director Rebecca Price.

In October, crews finished a renovation of St. Ambrose Catholic Church in Bristol, which included the expansion of the pantry and upgrades to the kitchen. The food shelf operates out of the basement of the West Street church.
