Tuesday, Nov. 4 is Election Day.
If you can’t make it to the polls for the General Election you can still take part by casting an early ballot. The deadline for early voting is 5 p.m. or the close of the clerk’s office on Monday, Nov. 3 — the day before voting at the polls.
BRISTOL — Bristol will be awash in patriotic fervor Saturday when the town hosts the 16th annual Scouting Salute to Veterans Parade. The event will kick off at 11 a.m. with a parade featuring Scouts and veterans from many parts of the state and wrap up with ceremony and remarks by Maj. Gen. Steven A. Cray, the adjutant general of the state of Vermont and the senior uniformed officer in the state.
BRISTOL — Voters in the five towns that comprise the Addison Northeast Supervisory Union will decide Tuesday whether to approve a $32.6 million bond to finance an ambitious renovation of Mount Abraham Union High School.
The project would make major structural and aesthetic improvements to the building, which has not undergone a substantial renovation since it was constructed in the late 1960s.
MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury residents beginning next April will be able to choose their own haulers to collect curbside recyclables from their homes and businesses. That’s because the Middlebury selectboard on Tuesday voted unanimously to discontinue the townwide recycling contract once the current pact with Casella expires on March 31, 2015.
VERMONT — Residents of Addison County towns will see a number of contested elections for Statehouse representatives (see story HERE). Voters on Nov. 4 will also cast ballots in the following statewide races:
If being memorable is a measure of a compelling production, the play “Ransom,” coming to the Middlebury Town Hall Theater on Saturday, Nov. 1, scores high. The scenes and the music have remained with me since 2010, the first time I attended “Ransom,” in the school auditorium in Rochester. The cast — all local townspeople — seemed to be still feeling it out, but the overall effect was that of a work destined to become a classic of its kind.
