Abuse victims wear pain on their sleeves

MIDDLEBURY — They are basic words transposed on simple cotton T-shirts, but they are strung together in such a fashion as to form powerful messages that can’t be ignored.

“One year later, I still cringe when people touch me. I always thought I was one of the people who would never be raped, until it happened.”

“‘Home sweet home’ may not always be sunshine and lollipops.”

“End the silence, stop the violence.”

“You took so much from me, but you couldn’t take my sparkle.”

Acclaimed film framed by writer's experience at Middlebury College

MIDDLEBURY — A Mormon student at Middlebury College can feel almost as out of place as a 20-year-old Hasidic Jew running the illicit drug ecstasy from Amsterdam to New York.

Almost.

Award-winning screenwriter Antonio Macia, who graduated from Middlebury in 2000, is well acquainted with the feeling of isolation that goes hand-in-hand with both scenarios.

ANwSU board ratifies two-year teacher contract

Posted on September 27, 2010 |
By Andrea Suozzo



VERGENNES — Teachers in the Addison Northwest Supervisory Union are once again working under a contract, after the ANwSU board of directors last week ratified a new, two-year agreement.

The new contract — which covers the period from July 1, 2010, to June 30, 2012 — holds the base teacher salary steady throughout the union, and stipulates no change in the percentage of health care coverage teachers pay. It does, however, uphold already budgeted stepped increases in salary, which will provide scheduled raises to teachers with higher education levels or longer tenures.

Group spearheads wetland restoration effort

MIDDLEBURY — Grass rustled in a muddy, sulphur-smelling ditch in Bridport, and just beyond the property line, vehicles hummed through fields of long grasses, cutting and sweeping the cuttings up to store for winter feed.

The long, deep ditch sits close to the edge of 175 acres along the Lemon Fair River that was, until recently, agricultural land. Years before that, the area was a wetland vital to the health of both the Lemon Fair and, at its end, Lake Champlain.

By Tamara Hilmes

The school board and Building Committee met on Wednesday to discuss possible next steps for the school.

The decision arrived in a letter written by School Construction Coordinator Cathy Hilgendorf on behalf of Commissioner Armando Vilaseca.

Porter Hospital OK'd for 6.5% rate hike

Posted on September 27, 2010 |
By Tamara Hilmes



MIDDLEBURY — The state has approved Porter Hospital’s request for a 6.5 percent rate for the fiscal year that begins this Friday. The higher rate is part of Porter’s $62,326,074 spending plan for fiscal year 2011, which represents a 5.4 percent spending increase over 2010.

The 6.5 percent rate increase exceeded regulators’ 5.9 percent cap on Vermont hospital rate increases, but Porter got the green light because its increase would have landed at just 5 percent had it not budgeted for installation of a digital record-keeping system also mandated by the state.

College gets high rank from NCSA

Posted on September 27, 2010 |
By Tamara Hilmes



MIDDLEBURY — Just like any compliment, some college rankings need to be taken with a grain of salt.

That is the attitude of Middlebury College Director of Athletics Erin Quinn, anyway, in deference to the National Collegiate Scouting Association’s (NCSA) recent ranking of Middlebury as third overall in their “comprehensive study of both academics and athletics.”
