MIDDLEBURY — About 40 Middlebury College students on this past Wednesday evening took part in a “die-in” to raise awareness about police oppression of minority groups.

The event was organized by freshmen Kizzy Joseph and Elizabeth Dunn, and senior Molly Stuart. The trio said the impetuses for the die-in were the deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner — black men who died at the hands of police in Missouri and New York, respectively.

Posted on December 11, 2014 |

Kirby said that in recent weeks the town has met with two separate manufacturers of a material used to cover landfills. Using material purchased from either of the firms, Omya and Resource Management Inc., would be substantially cheaper than covering the landfill with clay, as the town had initially planned to do.
