Until her possessions became so abundant that she closed her door and her life to all but her immediate family.

Clutter became her constant companion. With it came depression. Her mom, who moved in with her a few months ago due to failing health, has added an abundance of clothing and other stuff to the handbags and knick-knacks that Maureen can’t resist and can’t find the strength to discard.

MIDDLEBURY — Grace Sauerwald’s two children are grown and have long since left the house. It’s just her and her husband, Lee.

Or is it?

Sauerwald feels like she’s part of a 100-person family, and their home is the Middlebury Natural Foods Co-op (MNFC). Though not bound by blood, it’s a family that works together and looks out for its own, carrying Sauerwald through an epic health scare that fortunately ended with her getting a life saving new kidney earlier this year.

VERGENNES/MIDDLEBURY — Little City Cycles owner Tim Mathewson has seen people toss away hundreds of bikes during his 40 years repairing the machines. Some of them only needed a new tire, chain or a little tender loving care to remain road worthy.

Mathewson rescues copious numbers of bicycles from the scrap heap; and, crucially, he possesses the knowledge and skill to fix them up and give them new homes.

“These bikes… are like foster bikes,” Mathewson said during a Tuesday interview.
