VERGENNES — Vergennes police are still trying to identify the driver of a vehicle that fled from them on a snowy Friday night, but that they later tracked down in Middlebury.
At about 11:30 p.m. on Feb. 21, Vergennes police pulled over a car that failed to stop at the downtown traffic light. When police got out of the cruiser to speak to the driver, the car took off southbound on Green Street toward Route 17.

The other day, I took my four-year-old daughter on a long-overdue “Mommy Date” to spend her birthday money at Ben Franklin. (Long-overdue because her birthday was in July, which is what happens when you’re the second child of four). After our shopping trip, we stopped by Otter Creek Bakery for cookies. As I stood at the counter to order, my daughter sat at a table playing happily with the unicorn figurine she’d just bought.
