Opinion: Town office has served its purpose

Posted on January 2, 2014 |
By Hudson Tilford



Most days I drive down South Street and stop at its intersection with South Main Street. Lately I have been looking for an architectural treasure on an invaluable piece of town land, as all other letter writers seem to see. What I see is a tired old high school, its upper floor missing after a fire that occurred in my childhood, on an odd shaped piece of land. This building has served Middlebury as town offices for over 60 years, longer than it was its high school. It is time to move forward.

Opinion: Town should fix, not replace

Posted on November 21, 2013 |
By Barbara Shapiro



These are tough times. It’s appropriate to return to the frugality catchphrase of the Depression: Use it up, wear it out, make it do or do without.

Our municipal offices and gym are not used up or worn out. They’ve been seriously neglected for many years, but they can be affordably repaired and upgraded to meet the town’s needs.

By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — A decision by the Middlebury selectboard on Tuesday to exclude, due to conflict-of-interest allegations, two of its members from voting on a proposed town-gown agreement on a new municipal building and recreation center could substantially impede the plan from ever coming before the local electorate.

Editorial: Middlebury's Tea Party? Rarely has this town see an issue hijacked by a small minority

Posted on October 24, 2013 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



In what is clearly an end-around tactic to derail the proposed town office project in Middlebury, a handful of town residents forced a vote on Tuesday that nullified a previous 5-1 decision supporting the measure — an action that may prevent the measure from coming to a public vote, all because of a dubious conflict-of-interest complaint.
