BRIDPORT — Jill Vickers still remembers walking into the small hotel in a remote town in northern Afghanistan shoulder-to-shoulder with a handful of other young American women. Snowdrifts, she remembered, had accumulated in the halls of the hotel, and when the women made their way to their door, they realized they would be spending the night in their sleeping bags on the floor in an unheated room.

Welcome to Afghanistan in 1969.

New sprinklers on tap for city opera house

Posted on January 14, 2010 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — Earlier this month, Vergennes Opera House officials learned they would get a key piece of funding in their quest to install sprinklers in the City Hall theater: The Vermont Arts Council awarded the opera house a $20,000 Cultural Facilities Grant to support the project.

After adding the grant to a $32,588 Vermont Downtown Development Board tax credit the theater was granted in 2009, opera house executive director Jackson Evans said board members are confident they can raise the rest of the money for the $65,000 project, which they hope will begin next month.

By Kathryn Flagg



Meredith Wilson's classical musical about traveling salesman Harold Hill and a small town in Iowa marched onto the Town Hall Theater stage last week, performing to audiences that sold out as many as three weeks before the show opened.

The musical, directed by Doug Anderson and featuring a cast of 46, was months in the making, and Addison Independent photographer Trent Campbell tagged along from auditions to opening night. His photos, as well as Anderson's commentary about the musical, are collected in our behind-the-scenes look at the making of the "The Music Man."

Bristol dancer keeps the world beat

Posted on November 12, 2009 |

web_dancer.jpg

BRISTOL — Against the backdrop of a steady beat of African drums, Soriba Simbo Camara leapt and twisted, his body, contorting rhythmically to the sound. He carried a cow’s tail in one hand, a symbol of power in Guinean culture, and wore a traditional West African shirt. The dance was feverish but graceful, and at its end, Camara catapulted his body from the ground in a tremendous jump.

Camara wiped the sheen of sweat from his brow, and caught his breath.

“It keeps you young,” he said, grinning just as he had all through the dance.

RIPTON — Ensconced in a former farmhouse tucked away amid the tree-filled slopes of Ripton, one could already argue that attending classes at the North Branch School is akin to going back to nature.

But the more than two-dozen students and faculty at North Branch took that concept a step further last week, as part of their contribution to the more than 5,200 worldwide global warming action events that occurred on Oct. 24 through the efforts of 350.org.

CORNWALL — A recent college graduate from Cornwall is hoping his senior thesis serves as a learning tool for politicians to change federal immigration laws and working conditions for the state’s migrant Mexican farm workers.

Bjorn Jackson, an aspiring filmmaker who recently graduated from Hampshire College in Amherst, Mass., spent seven months — spanning September 2007 through April 2008 — making his documentary, titled “Under The Cloak of Darkness: Vermont’s Migrant Mexican Farm Workers.”
