ADDISON COUNTY — In local high school girls’ soccer late last week, Otter Valley picked up a home win, but Middlebury lost on the road.

VUHS was 4-3-1 heading into a game at Mount Abraham (3-4-1) on Friday — see story.

BRANDON — Looking around a collection of freshly unboxed tanks, fixtures and other equipment in the Conant Block building one day last month, Pete Brooks said the space was finally starting to look like a brewery. 

“It’s a nice change of pace,” he said. “We’ve been waiting for so long.”

The three massive barrels arrived last month from Oregon. The boxes were so big they had to remove one of the massive windows at the front of the building to accommodate the delivery.

TECARI Fist bump.jpg

BRANDON — “Colors are important to me.”

So begins Tecari Shuman’s artist statement in his catalog of paintings.

“I don’t know exactly why, but they are. It goes back to my landscaping days. I noticed that certain colors just go well together — just feel right. Working in the landscape, I became connected to nature. Through this intimate relationship, I discovered that I am nature … that we’re all nature.”
