MIDDLEBURY — Repairs to the ceiling in the worship hall at St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church on the green in Middlebury are nearing completion.

It was only a month ago on Dec. 5 when Liz Cleveland, coordinator for lectors and intercessors at the church, and St. Stephen’s organist George Matthew were in the building discussing heating when they were interrupted by a loud noise from within the sanctuary: One of the beams supporting the ceiling had fallen.

By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — The Vergennes Union Elementary School board ended a budget workshop meeting last week eyeing a $4.26 million 2014-2015 budget that would increase spending by 4.34 percent, or $177,000.

By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — The proposal to convert the former Vergennes nursing home at 1 Alden Place into a treatment center for troubled teen girls and young women has hit a major snag — a dispute between the property’s seller and its contracted buyer.

The sale of the former Briarwood Nursing Home to Valley Vista, which operates a 10-year-old, 80-bed substance-abuse treatment center in Bradford, is either off or on hold, according to versions offered by building owner John Laberge or Valley Vista co-owner Rick DiStefano.
