By the way for March 29

Author Tanya Lee Stone, whose presentation was cancelled last month due to a snowstorm, will discuss her book, “Girl Rising: Changing the World One Girl at a Time,” on Tuesday morning, April 3, at 11 a.m. in the Mount Abraham Union High School auditorium. Stone will discuss and answer questions about her book, which examines global barriers to girls’ education. The presentation is free, open to the public and handicapped accessible. Guests are asked to arrive early so they can be directed to the auditorium by members of One World Library Project, which is hosting the event.
It’s almost spring, which in many Addison County towns means it’s almost time to renew your dog license. Time runs out on Monday, April 2, in Middlebury, as well as in many other Vermont towns. Go to your local clerk’s office and bring a current rabies certificate to prove that your dog has been vaccinated. Every town charges a few bucks; it’s usually a little more if the dog still has working reproductive parts. Monday’s deadline is a day later than usual because April 1 falls on a Sunday.
