MIDDLEBURY — “Even today, when I stand up at hockey games for ‘The Star Spangled Banner,’ the first thought in my mind is Charlie Lee,” said Reg Spooner.

Spooner, 78, has lived his whole life in Middlebury. His dad worked for Monument Farms. Spooner worked there some too.

MIDDLEBURY — JoyRyde, a new app for mobile devices created by two Middlebury College students, has tracked more than 33,000 miles of phone-free driving — and counting.

That’s a big deal, given that around 660,000 drivers “at any given daylight moment across America” are talking on cell phones or using electronic devices, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. As estimated by the NHTSA, all that distracted driving leads to around 3,000 fatalities and over 400,000 injuries a year.
