MIDDLEBURY — No one knows exactly how town photography began. In the late 1890s, people began ordering large 8” by 10” cameras from the Sears Roebuck mail order catalogue for about $40 (about 10 times the weekly wage of a cobbler). A few entrepreneurial photographers — whose identities are now unknown — began charging for photographs of families posing in front of their homes with the new cameras.

The photographers also made postcards that were mailed around the country.

LINCOLN ­— When she reached her mid-forties, Khenmo Drolma was diagnosed with cancer and given five years to live. The diagnosis pushed her to dedicate herself completely to the religion that she had been dabbling in since she was 30, Buddhism.

Reduced burden for middle class key to Howard's Lt. gov. run

Posted on July 12, 2010 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — To say that Steve Howard entered politics at an early age would be an understatement.

The 38-year-old Rutland City Democrat was 13 years old in 1984 when he covertly campaigned for then-gubernatorial candidate Madeleine Kunin.

MIDDLEBURY — “Just speak up if we can help you,” Dan Freeman called to the customers who’d ambled into the Middlebury shoemaker’s shop.

Behind his worktable, Freeman’s hands were in constant motion — stretching the leather in one shoe, and boxing up another pair to ship off to a customer. He pulled lasts, the foot-shaped models used for designing shoes, from the crowded shelves around his workbench.
