MIDDLEBURY — Barbara and Al Stiles moved from Connecticut to Middlebury back in 1976 to enjoy a more relaxed, healthy atmosphere.

Truth is, the two have done so much volunteer work — from grooming the Long Trail to serving on municipal boards — in and around Middlebury that relaxing became an afterthought.

But advancing years and a desire to be closer to family have prompted Al, 86, and Barbara, 90, to begin a new chapter in their lives. On Monday, Nov. 16, they will leave Middlebury to move into a retirement community near Santa Cruz, Calif.

Barring unforeseen legal or insurance-related complications, the new dog park will be created on Middlebury College-owned land located near the Middlebury Regional EMS headquarters and Charter House community garden off South Street.

VTrans: Middlebury rail bridges clearance must rise

Posted on November 9, 2015 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — State transportation officials have served notice that Middlebury should not count on any further reduction in the minimum vertical clearance requirement for its two deteriorating downtown rail underpasses that need to be replaced. This means that the bridges will have to be re-done with a minimum 21 feet of clearance for trains, and not at the current 17 feet, 9 inches of clearance that local officials believe could have led to a more basic project and shorter construction timetable.
