Posted on January 28, 2010 |
By John Flowers

MIDDLEBURY — It began as a 2009 Arbor Day assignment during which Mary Hogan Elementary School fourth-graders led an effort to plant 16 new trees on school grounds.

But it was as assignment that blossomed into an educational, community-wide endeavor and culminated last week in the young students receiving a statewide award for their efforts, presented to them at the Vermont Statehouse on Jan. 20 by fellow Middlebury resident Gov. James Douglas.

MIDDLEBURY — The ID-4 school board will form a committee to study the feasibility of re-establishing a foreign language program at Mary Hogan Elementary School by the fall of 2011.

New bill takes aim at mold insurance rules

Posted on January 25, 2010 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — A former Bristol resident is urging the state Legislature to pass a new law that would require property and casualty insurers to provide coverage for mold-related damage in homes.

At issue is bill S.229, introduced this year on behalf of Brenda Shores, who rented a basement apartment on Mountain Street in Bristol from 2006-2007. During her tenancy, she said mold took over the apartment, creeping into the walls and eventually into her clothing and furniture.

Public's top bridge choice proceeds to design phase

Posted on January 18, 2010 |
By John Flowers



web_bridgebig.jpg

ADDISON — Vermont and New York transportation authorities are proceeding with the design of a “modified network tied arch” span that will replace the former Champlain Bridge at the same location.

That news was confirmed on Thursday by Vermont Gov. James Douglas and Gov. David Paterson of New York. The modified network tied arch scheme was the overwhelming public pick from among six possible replacement options for the Champlain Bridge, which was closed Oct. 16 and imploded on Dec. 28 after having been deemed by state officials to be unsafe and unsalvageable.

Posted on January 18, 2010 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — The Shard Villa residential care home continues to rebound from the brink, with board members announcing last week the historic facility has achieved full capacity with 14 residents.

“We’re hanging in there,” Shard Villa Director Deb Choma said on Thursday. “We’re doing alright.”
