MIDDLEBURY — Stewards of the Middlebury Community House are trying to boost residents’ awareness of, and investment in, a downtown architectural jewel that is beginning to show signs of wear and tear after almost two centuries of battering from the elements.

Built in 1816 near the Congregational Church of Middlebury at the corner of Main and Seymour streets, the bright yellow Middlebury Community House remains one of the best examples of post-colonial, Federal-style architecture left in town.

HANCOCK — Work goes quickly when you have many hands.

On Saturday, May 15, trail maintenance volunteers on the Bread Loaf section of the Long Trail discovered the truth of that saying. The 16 workers spread out to clear fallen trees, branches and debris on five miles of trail, all the way from Route 125 at the top of the Middlebury Gap south to Worth Mountain. In under three hours, the trail was clear and the group was ready for lunch.

By Kathryn Flagg



BRISTOL — Bristol residents are counting down the weeks to the latest chapter of a years-long fight over a proposed 26-acre gravel pit off Rounds Road. A hearing slated for June 28 will determine whether the contentious pit conforms with Act 250, the state’s Land Use and Development Act.

But now some opponents of the pit are crying foul after local Act 250 commissioners in the Addison County district handed the case off to commissioners from the neighboring Rutland County board.

“When money is in short supply, it dominates the entire session.”

MIDDLEBURY — It’s an image that evokes an earlier time: a solitary Vermonter in a flat-bottomed wooden boat, poling through a flooded marshland and pulling muskrats out of traps.

Though the art of building the fur-trapping boat has been all but lost in the past half-century, last fall Vergennes boat builder Douglas Brooks and Middlebury College students Renee Igo, Christian Woodard and Ben Meader embarked on a journey to rediscover — and recreate — that tradition.
