MIDDLEBURY — The Middlebury Amateur Hockey Association Under-14 girls’ hockey team won the Vermont championship on Saturday to highlight a busy weekend at Middlebury’s Memorial Sports Center.
The sports center hosted the second annual Vermont State Amateur Hockey Association Championship Weekend from Friday through Sunday, an event that included 30 teams playing in 15 championship games for skaters between the ages of 8 and 18.
WHITE RIVER JUNCTION, Vt./TROY, N.Y. — Area swimmers posted some impressive performances recently when the Middlebury Aquatic Club competed in the 2014 New England 12-and-Under Age Group Championship Meet at the Upper Valley Aquatic Center in White River Junction and the Bristol-based Addison Otter Swim Team raced at the Silver Short Course Championship at the RPI Robison Pool in Troy, NY.

There’s a chicken in our bathroom.
This is not a clever turn of phrase like “a bird in the hand” or “a bun in the oven.” There is actually a live chicken staying in a Rubbermaid tub in our bathroom.

I am a lifelong resident of the state of Vermont currently residing in the town of Middlebury. Recently, I received a license renewal notification from the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV), including information regarding the Real ID Act. Acting on the information provided and the need to renew my license, I went to the mobile DMV office at the courthouse in Middlebury on Feb. 19 in the afternoon. What ensued is an example of how far this great state and the USA as a whole, have strayed from sanity.
