MIDDLEBURY — It was during the fall of 2010 that the $16 million Cross Street Bridge project was unveiled in downtown Middlebury with high hopes that it would clear Main Street traffic jams and provide a vital, second crossing of the Otter Creek as an insurance policy for emergency vehicles.

BRISTOL — The Bristol Planning Commission on Tuesday put the finishing touches on its draft of the town plan and sent it to the selectboard for its review and two further public hearings.

By Christian Woodard



MIDDLEBURY — Last Thursday, a crowd of 40 Middlebury College students and a few adults marched from the steps of the Davis Family Library to Hillcrest Environmental Center. They hoisted homemade signs and chanted phrases borrowed from the Occupy Wall Street demonstrations in New York City.

MIDDLEBURY — Pinecones hang like bells from a branch. A birch bark globe trimmed with sumac twists in the breeze. Other pieces of sculpture are tucked just off the Middlebury trail — a wrapped figure eight of grape vines, a discarded snack food wrapper garnished with a sprig of white pine.

And the whole walk is sprinkled with poems, paintings and photography hanging in in waterproof cases .
