MIDDLEBURY — Greg’s Meat Market will officially close its doors at the end of its final business day, tomorrow, Wednesday, April 1.
Greg’s co-owner Bart Litvin has issued the following statement to the Addison Independent regarding the status of the independent grocery store on Elm Street:
MIDDLEBURY — Porter Medical Center today announced that a long-time hospital executive from North Carolina will succeed James L. Daily as president of the Middlebury organization. Daily will retire this spring after 31 years in his role.
MIDDLEBURY — Steven Jupiter, 46, had spent much of his adult life engaged in an internal struggle about what he should do professionally. Should he continue to pursue a career in such conventional fields as lawyering, publishing and teaching, or abandon those pursuits and follow his passion: art.
MIDDLEBURY — Greg’s Meat Market was open for business Monday, March 30 — albeit with a small staff working among store aisles with severely depleted shelves.
The Independent tried to reach current Greg’s co-owner, Bart Litvin, by phone this morning. Litvin’s voice mail would not accept new messages. An auto reply from Litvin’s email last week said he would be out until March 26.
FERRISBURGH — Vergennes police on Friday morning arrested seven people — four adult men and three minor girls — in connection with a series of break-ins at camps in Ferrisburgh.
The adults arrested are: 19-year-old Seamus C. Doolan of Essex Junction; Brian J. MacKenzie, 18, of South Burlington; Nathan P. Morrill, 20, of Burlington and Matthew J. Shepardson, 21, of Hinesburg. Police issued juvenile citations to the girls and released them into the custody of their parents.
On a recent Thursday, with a foot of snow on the ground and the outside temperature hovering around 15 degrees, spring seemed a long way off indeed.
So it was pure delight to step into a warm, sunny greenhouse filled with growing things: trays of green mesclun ready to harvest; a prolific red nasturtium casually draped around a window and an enormous pink New Guinea impatiens.
