Kids walk from up to a mile away on the hot pavement to take a dip near her home in the shallow pool in the Neshobe River created by a cluster of rocks just off of Route 73 in Brandon.

MIDDLEBURY — Fifteen months ago, Middlebury’s municipal building and recreation facility projects were simply controversial lines on paper. It took a second public vote of 880 to 714 in May of 2014 to affirm the $6.5 million undertaking, which had stirred up more intense debate than the town had seen since a controversial Price Chopper Supermarket proposal two decades earlier.

Zues with plane.jpg

MIDDLEBURY — We should all have a nickname like Nathan Zuses.

The World War II veteran goes by “Zues,” pronounced the same as “Zeus,” the mythical Greek God of the sky, lightning, thunder, law, order and justice.

Seventy years ago, Zues, as he likes to be known, was toting a 50-caliber machine gun through the Ardennes region in Belgium as part of a U.S. Army anti-aircraft unit fighting in the Battle of the Bulge.

By John Flowers



CORNWALL — Three Cornwall residents have expressed an interest in filling a vacancy on their town selectboard that was created by the sudden death last month of incumbent Dave Sears.

Sears died following complications from a stroke on July 11, at age 56. He was widely known as a longtime broadcaster of Middlebury Union High School varsity football and Middlebury College sports. But he was also a very civic-minded individual who had served for 35 years on the local fire department, and five years on the Cornwall selectboard.
