There has been a great deal of negativity surrounding the Porter Medical Center in the recent past. I want to describe a strong, positive experience with the hospital.
I received a hip replacement at Porter on March 28. From that day until now (I am still receiving outpatient physical therapy) both my husband and I have been extremely pleased and impressed by the professional care that I have received.
Thank you to Judy and Michael Olinick for bringing to the surface the great disastrous day at Middlebury College in May of 1991. They did a fine job of telling the story as it happened.
Since becoming a Vermont resident in 2003, I periodically have been shocked by the behavior of some hunters. Specifically, I’m referring to hunters who participate in coyote contest hunts or just “run their dogs” on coyotes for the thrill of the kill.
MIDDLEBURY — The Middlebury Union High School girls’ lacrosse team thumped visiting South Burlington on Tuesday, 16-4, in the Tigers’ final regular-season home game.
MUHS moved to 11-2 with games left at Rutland (6-8) on Thursday and at first-place Mount Mansfield (13-2) on Friday. They are in a fight for top Division I seeds and could finish as high as first or as low as fifth depending on their and other teams’ results.
The Vermont Principals’ Association will announce playoff pairings on Monday.
SOUTH DUXBURY — In the teams’ final match of the spring, host Harwood dealt the Middlebury Union High School boys’ tennis team a 6-1 setback that was the 9-0 Tigers’ first loss of the season, but did not count in the official Division I standings.
According to MUHS athletic director Sean Farrell, the Vermont Principals’ Association’s tennis committee ruled the match, which had been postponed from an earlier date, had been played after the cutoff date for regular season play.
ADDISON COUNTY — All four area high school softball teams posted key wins earlier this week as the regular season neared its end. The regular season ends this week, and the Vermont Principals’ Association will announce playoff pairings on Monday.
MIDDLEBURY — On Monday, for the second straight game the Middlebury Union High School boys’ lacrosse team gave a Division I power all it could handle, but came up just short, this time to third-ranked South Burlington, 8-7.
Two days before, the 6-8 Tigers lost to visiting first-place Champlain Valley, 7-6. And that result followed a convincing, 9-5 win at Mount Mansfield, a team the Tigers needed overtime to defeat at home on May 9.
ADDISON COUNTY — In high school baseball action earlier this week, Middlebury dropped a home contest, while Mount Abraham, Vergennes and Otter Valley lost on the road.
