Trent Roleau, Hero

Posted on August 2, 2010 | Blog Category:
By George Altshuler



I never thought my personal hero would be younger than me. But I've come to believe that Trent Roleau, 21, is either Addison County's incarnation of Achilles or a modern day Perseus. I'm not quite sure which.

Back in the day he led the Mount Abe basketball team to a state championship. More recently, I profiled him as part of my Making a Life in Addison County series, and he told me about his plans to start a small-scale diversified farm in Lincoln. Intrepid stuff.

Table Talk: Vergennes Laundry

Posted on July 22, 2010 | Blog Category:
By Andrea Suozzo



Last week the old Vergennes Laundromat on Main Street was mostly empty, except for a few stacks of boards and the hum of power tools emerging from the open doors.

Inside, 25-year-old Julianne Jones and fiancé Didier Murat were working atop the newly poured concrete floors, cutting and measuring the wood that would become the bathroom walls. Along the wall in the middle of the long room was a platform, sitting at the ready for the brick oven that will form the centerpiece of Jones’s bakery when it opens in September.

Below is a Spanish translation of a July 19 article, Mexican officials visit Middlebury. Over 100 Mexican immigrants met with consulate officials in a Middlebury church to apply for passports and "matricula" residency cards. Various local organizations were also on hand to offer legal advice, health care and domestic abuse counseling. Special thanks to J.P. Allen for helping with this translation.

Middlebury Trailrunner: The grand Moosalamoo traverse

Posted on July 8, 2010 | Blog Category:
By Jeff Byers



The Moosalamoo National Recreation Area, the region which encompasses many of the runs on this blog, is one of the wonderfully underutilized outdoor resources in the northeast. This region, roughly delineated by Rt. 125 (the Middlebury Gap road) to the north, the main ridge of the Green Mountains to the east, Goshen and Brandon to the south, and Lake Dunmore to the west, provides a treasure trove of places to explore right at our doorstep in Addison County.

Unexpected: The Vermont Ukulele Society

Posted on July 1, 2010 | Blog Category:
By George Altshuler



Four years ago, I geared up to live in a land of dairy farms, maple syrup and cold winters. I had lived in California my whole life, and I was going to Middlebury College.

I soon found out that the winters here are indeed cold — quite cold — and I've enjoyed my share of covered bridges and berry picking. But over the years, I've come across quite a lot I didn't expect from Vermont.

Table Talk: A local vineyard blossoms

Posted on June 24, 2010 | Blog Category:
By Andrea Suozzo



Stacks of sandy-colored wooden barrels stood in a corner in a back room at Lincoln Peak Vineyard in New Haven, several sporting deep purple stains, suggestions of the wine that sat aging inside.

Until about eight years ago, said vineyard co-owner Chris Granstrom, this room held the checkout counter for the strawberries that grew on the 12 acres of farmland. Now, on the same land, wide, orderly rows of grape vines stretch back to the treeline.

Middlebury Trailrunner: The Widow's Clearing

Posted on June 7, 2010 | Blog Category:
By Jeff Byers



This week’s post begins at what is by now, a fairly common trailhead for my runs, the Brooks Road parking lot. This trailhead, a mile or so downhill from the Middlebury College Snow Bowl, has been the starting point for several of my blogged runs over the last year, most recently a post entitled “A Tale of Two Weekends.

Table Talk: A 'Secret Garden' of greens

Posted on June 7, 2010 | Blog Category:
By Andrea Suozzo



It was only early June, and the sage plants were already threatening to take over Nola Kevra’s Ripton greenhouse. In the garden plot outside, squash plants unfurled their leaves next to shallots, garlic, beans and peas.

The hundreds of varieties of plants surrounding the house ran riot over nearly every available surface, creating an air of comfortable chaos in the small clearing around the house.
