MIDDLEBURY — Hard work and tenacity pays off.

Just ask Dustin Hunt.

Fourteen years ago, Hunt was carting soil and fishing debris out of the Middlebury municipal pool as a part-time laborer with the town’s Parks & Recreation Department.

On Monday he began his new job as the department’s top administrator.

“It really is a dream come true for me,” Hunt, 33, said of his new job.

Pesky mice seem to be everywhere; rodent boom raises Lyme fear

AubuchonCat8085.jpg

ADDISON COUNTY — It may be the height of summer, but mice and other rodents in Vermont are acting like it’s autumn, or even winter.

Months ahead of schedule they’ve begun to nest in cars, lawnmowers and houses, where they settle into the walls and crank out babies. At night they skitter through the rafters, clickety-click, gnaw on electrical wiring and creep through kitchens, leaving trails of droppings.

And county residents have had enough.

Doug Sinclair, co-executive director of the Charter House Coalition, said that in spite of uncertain funding the shelter on North Pleasant Street would open its doors on Sept. 1 this year rather than operating from mid-October to April as it has in prior years.

Women take charge in Bristol

BristolBusiness2178.jpg

BRISTOL — Women own or run a heck of a lot of Bristol businesses.

Though there is no definitive list of town business, Ian Albinson, executive director of the Bristol CORE business group, compiled a list of 22 women-owned or women-run businesses virtually off the top of his head.

No one can say just why this is the case and what it means for the town’s future, but people paying attention say that the number of women in the town’s business scene and the vigor they bring to the entrepreneurial ecosystem is undeniable.

Check your Vt. property tax bill; thousands are probably inaccurate

Posted on July 19, 2018 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



ADDISON COUNTY — Many property tax bills already sent out by Vermont town clerks and treasurers lack information about education property tax breaks for eligible homeowners, according to state and local officials.
