Playwright illuminates Twain romance

Posted on November 8, 2010 |
By Andrea Suozzo



web_play7236.jpg

MIDDLEBURY — The romance between Laura Wright and Samuel Clemens was a whirlwind on the New Orleans riverfront, lasting only three days in the spring of 1858.

The passionate (though chaste) meeting had a lasting impact on the lives of both young people long after they went their separate ways — 14-year-old Laura to become a schoolteacher in Los Angeles; 22-year-old Sam to pilot steamboats and, later, begin writing under the pen name Mark Twain.

Student thespians hope to take flight in 'Peter Pan'

Posted on November 8, 2010 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — The Patricia A. Hannaford Career Center’s Addison Repertory Theater (A.R.T.) is seeking to raise $11,000 to help its planned performance of “Peter Pan” soar to lofty heights.
The $11,000 is needed to hire Flying by Foy — a professional aerial choreography company — to literally get A.R.T.’s Peter Pan production off the ground. A representative of the company would come in to rig the Middlebury Union High School auditorium stage with the necessary cables and other technology to allow the student stars of the play to take flight in Pan-like fashion.

Middlebury celebrates opening of new bridge

MIDDLEBURY — An army of pirates, goblins and superheroes poured across the Otter Creek on Saturday by way of a brand new span that had been on the town of Middlebury’s drawing board since the early 1950s.

And as the Halloween revelers danced on what a half century ago was only a dream, town officials had to be pinching themselves.

This was not a trick.

It was a treat.

Over 144 homeless in Addison County

Posted on November 4, 2010 |
By Tamara Hilmes



MIDDLEBURY — George is a single, self-employed carpenter. Things usually get a little slower over the winter months, but he cannot find anything this year. He has not paid his rent in three months, and his landlord continues to call and stop by.

This is just one scenario depicting homelessness in Addison County that Ingrid Pixley presented to an audience of around 30 at Middlebury College’s final poverty symposium lecture on Thursday.

Couple found not guilty of disorderly conduct

Posted on November 4, 2010 |
By Andrea Suozzo



MIDDLEBURY — On Sept. 30, Goshen residents David and Erica Sabatini were acquitted of the charges of disorderly conduct leveled against them last April.

The dispute between the Sabatinis and the state was resolved after a trial that lasted most of two days and a number of witnesses.

Attorney Oliver Cleary, who represented the defendants, said that it’s unusual for a disorderly conduct charge to go to court — it is usually settled before a case gets to trial. But, he said, the Sabatinis hoped to prove their innocence rather than settling the case.

Mobile eatery rolls out 'Ver-Mexican' cuisine

Posted on November 4, 2010 |
By Andrea Suozzo



web_burritoguy5530.jpg

MIDDLEBURY — Kristin and Damian Bittrolf trace their roots back to Ireland, Lithuania and Portugal, and more recently, to Cape Cod and Boston, Mass.

Six days a week, though, the couple dishes up pieces of another culture entirely: They sell burritos from Green-go’s, their food cart in Frog Hollow Alley, just off of Main Street in downtown Middlebury.

The two make no claims to authenticity — but they say that’s not necessarily what their customers are looking for. Damian said they have coined their own term for this hybrid cuisine: “Ver-Mexican.”

By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — The Mary Hogan Elementary School board wants the public to weigh in on approximately $235,000 in 2011-2012 budget cuts that would be necessary for the school to comply with the state’s “Challenges for Change” request.

The Vermont Legislature and Education Commissioner Armando Vilaseca have asked the state’s school districts to prepare 2011-2012 budgets that reflect a 2-percent decrease in spending compared to this year. This Challenges for Change directive is designed to save around $23 million in overall education spending next year.

Posted on October 28, 2010 |
By Tamara Hilmes



MIDDLEBURY — One in 12 households in Vermont could not afford to put food on the table between 2006 and 2008, Joel Berg told a small group of Middlebury College students last Friday.
Berg kicked off Middlebury College’s fall symposium, “American Poverty in Context” at the end of last week in a lunchtime discussion session at the college by addressing an issue that, for Vermonters, hit close to home.
