MIDDLEBURY — Audience members take their seats, the house lights dim, then the stage lights, queue the music and the cast takes the stage — it’s another performance at Town Hall Theater. But on Saturday, Nov. 24, the curtain will rise on a cast that drools, sheds and walks on four legs (most of the time). That’s right, dogs.

Sixteen canines of all shapes and sizes will join Johnny Peers on Saturday for the Muttville Comix’s second performance at the Middlebury theater. They first came to the Town Hall Theater in January 2017.

Findlay DSC_5460.jpg

MIDDLEBURY — Sixteen-year-old Joseph Findlay has always loved writing.

The Middlebury resident developed an affinity for the craft as a second-grader. He’d write stories for the fun of it, building a plot around his characters only to leave them hanging in mid-adventure after having suddenly moved on to another project.

“I was training for the Winter Olympics in Alaska when I got my orders for Vietnam.” 

That’s how John Morton began his presentation to my class on the Vietnam War. 

“Even when the plane landed at Tan Son Nhut Air Base, I was sure the Army had made a mistake and I would be getting right back on the plane.” 

In general, college boys found ways to avoid serving in Vietnam. That’s not so true of Middlebury College boys.

By Megan James



At Quarry Hill School in Middlebury, November is all about Stone Soup. Three- and 4-year-olds spend the weeks leading up to Thanksgiving immersing themselves in the classic tale and preparing for a feast. They chop vegetables, make bread, churn butter, decorate stones and write menus and invitations. It all culminates in a big party — with songs and soup, of course — at school with their families.
