Middlebury orders study to pin down rail station location

Posted on November 29, 2010 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — The town of Middlebury is applying for a $15,000 federal grant to plan for a local, passenger rail station in anticipation of ramped-up train service along the western part of the state.

Middlebury Town Manager Bill Finger said making progress toward a passenger rail station would also likely enhance the community’s chances for landing federal aid to replace the two railroad underpasses on Main Street and Merchants Row. Those two underpass projects have been on the Vermont Agency of Transportation’s to-do list for several years.

MIDDLEBURY — An ad hoc committee studying the feasibility of a major retail-commercial-residential project on town- and college-owned land behind Middlebury’s Ilsley Public Library will update the public on its work early next year.

At issue is an “Economic Development Initiative (EDI)” being crafted by the town and Middlebury College. It’s a project intended to complement the recently completed Cross Street Bridge and the new entrepreneurial opportunities the new downtown structure could present.

Locals invite international students to share in Thanksgiving traditions

MIDDLEBURY — Green bean casserole, cranberry sauce and Aunt Betty’s traditional, unidentifiable Jell-O salad aside, some students at Middlebury College do not even know what Thanksgiving — a uniquely American holiday — actually is.

In his freshman year, Aubrey Dube, a junior from Botswana, went home with his roommate to Westchester, N.Y., and experienced his first Thanksgiving.

“It was weird because people eat until they drop,” Dube said. “I thought, ‘Wait, what? Are we seriously doing this?’ They were eating and taking breaks and going back to eat.”

By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — The Better Middlebury Partnership (BMP) has minted some new currency to promote downtown shopping, as well as the downtown itself.

The BMP has produced a new version of the “Middlebury Money,” checks that can be purchased in various denominations for transactions at local retail, dining and lodging establishments. Middlebury Money was first “minted” around 15 years ago. At its peak, approximately $27,000 worth of Middlebury money was sold in one year, sparking business for local merchants and service providers.

'Challenges' funds aim to transform social services

By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — “Challenges for Change” has largely been portrayed as an effort by the Douglas administration and the 2010 Legislature to save $38 million in state spending by making government programs more lean and efficient.

And while the new directive has sent many public entities scrambling to make deep cuts, a few enterprising nonprofits are poised to receive some budget increases for some innovative programs that could help the state save more money in the long run to meet the Challenges goal.

Student's grant hinges on video

MIDDLEBURY — Andrew Freeman willingly posted on Facebook footage of himself tumbling haphazardly over the Otter Creek Falls in downtown Middlebury in a kayak and is encouraging people to watch it and to tell their friends to do the same.

If he gets enough people to watch it — and like it — he’ll will a grant.

Freeman’s video, which he wrote and shot at various locations around Vermont on behalf of the Middlebury College Mountain Club (known also as MMC), was recently chosen as one of four finalists for fabric manufacturer Polartec’s “Made Possible” grant.

MIDDLEBURY — Jutta Miska on Monday recalled setting up a makeshift gathering spot for area teens around 17 years ago in the Middlebury Recreation Department’s old warming hut.

Local teens took to the space, but it was available only for a few years. And thus the seemingly perennial quest for a Middlebury teen center slogged on.

Until now.

Trash district eyes level tipping fee, lower rates

By John Flowers



 
MIDDLEBURY — The Addison County Solid Waste Management District (ACSWMD) board is considering a 2011 budget of $2,410,761 that reflects a 1.9-percent increase in spending, but would not result in any boost in tipping fees at the district transfer station in Middlebury.
In fact, disposal fees for some recyclables are projected to go down, due to a more lucrative market for such items and because of the provisions of a new electronics waste law that will soon take effect.
