By Faith Gong



Please, don’t tell me that you’ve spent all day working out in the garden. 

I see you, anyway: out in your yards, industriously raking leaves out of your garden beds, shoveling mulch, setting up your floating row covers.

BRANDON — The final semesters of college can be very stressful. From staying up all night and cramming for finals, to worrying about post-graduation life and finding a career, many students experience varying levels of stress.

As a junior at St. Lawrence University in upstate New York, Alison “Allie” Walter began waking up with migraines and was constantly tired. She found herself struggling to accomplish basic tasks. The nurses she saw at the school dismissed her symptoms as stress, much like typical university students experience.

Shelter extends service into summer to meet high demand

Posted on April 29, 2019 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — It used to be the Charter House Coalition’s (CHC) warming shelter at 27 North Pleasant St. would close its doors when the calendar read late-April and the thermometer climbed into the 60s.

Not this year.

In response to growing demand, the CHC has decided to keep the shelter open, through at least the summer months, for up to 16 individuals with no other housing options. The much-respected nonprofit is still busy raising the estimated $62,000 it will take to keep the shelter operating well beyond its customary shut-down date of April 22.

LINCOLN — Harriett “Hattie” Brown celebrated her 100th birthday on April 10.

“I’ve been here quite a while,” the Lincoln resident said, smiling, in a recent interview.

After a century of meeting and greeting, Brown knows so many people it would be impossible to throw a reasonable-size birthday party. So her granddaughter, Barbara Rainville, decided to throw her a card shower instead.

Bridport principal Brinkman, Mattew_1490 cmyk better.jpg

BRIDPORT — Matthew Brankman couldn’t help but chuckle at the perfectly reasonable question he was asked during his recent interview for the Bridport Central School principalship:

“Will you be able to handle living in rural Vermont?”

When you currently live in a community of around 1,200 and your resumé includes seven years teaching to tiny groups of children in the Alaskan bush, it’s pretty safe to say Matt Brankman won’t feel isolated in rural Vermont.

American Idiot by Steve James.jpg

MIDDLEBURY — For some of us, reconnecting with our inner, angsty teenager isn’t very difficult; for others, that was a time better left forgotten. The Middlebury College Department of Theatre and Dance is embracing it with a musical adaptation of the band Green Day’s 2004 concept album, “American Idiot.” The show, directed by Assistant Professor of Theatre Michole Biancosino (a ’98 Middlebury alumnus) with musical direction by Clint Bierman (’97 alumnus) and live music by The Grift, will be performed May 2-4 at Wright Theater on campus.
