Maura book on Semprun book cover.jpg

MIDDLEBURY — Soledad Fox Maura has fond memories of her formative years in Middlebury during the late 1960s and early 1970s. She attended Mary Hogan Elementary School through third grade.

Bristol eyes land for rec building

Posted on September 10, 2018 |
By Christopher Ross



BRISTOL — The Bristol Recreation Department is one step closer to getting a new rec center, next door to property owned by the Bristol Recreation Club.

The town of Bristol on Aug. 20 signed a deal to buy a home on 0.59 acre at 76 West St. for $166,500, the assessed value of the property. The fate of the house there remains unclear.

Voters must approve the purchase at next year’s annual town meeting.

In the long run, the move could save Bristol money by consolidating programs in one location, according to officials.

Vergennes police to get SUV, not body cameras

Posted on September 10, 2018 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — The Vergennes Police Department will be getting a new Commercial Motor Vehicle (CMV) enforcement SUV, but that purchase will come at the expense of delaying the purchase of body cameras for each of the department’s eight full- or part-time officers.
