MIDDLEBURY — Journalist and Black Lives Matter activist Shaun King told a standing-room-only Mead Chapel crowd on Tuesday evening that America is in a historic “dip” from which to recover will require a major commitment, especially from young people like the Middlebury College students who flocked to see him.

King, for the past year the New York Daily News senior justice writer and before then a journalist for the Daily Kos website, said racism is part of the nation’s DNA, but through work change can be made.

Zuckerman, David for online.jpg

MIDDLEBURY — Sen. Dave Zuckerman, a Progressive and Democrat from Hinesburg, is traveling throughout the state in his first bid for statewide office, and he knows his way around. While he’s spent the past 18 years representing folks in Chittenden County, he’s made a habit of logging a lot of miles to better pollinate his ideas on marriage equality, the economy and taxation.

“I have kept one foot in the building, and another out in the state,” Zuckerman said during a visit with the Addison Independent on Monday.

ADDISON COUNTY — Addison County is a good place to be a bee compared to many other parts of the country, local beekeepers report. And that’s a good thing.

“Roughly one-third of the food we eat is pollinated by bees,” according to Cornwall beekeeper Andrew Munkres.

CORNWALL — Cornwall Town Clerk Sue Johnson will soon be trading her town hall office for a very tiny, Spartan workspace in a nearby trailer.

No, she’s not being banished by community leaders. She’s just going to have to go through some short-term pain for the eventual gain of a renovated Cornwall Town Hall, which will feature a new roof, new quarters for the municipal library, additional storage space and a spruced-up environment in which to conduct town business.
