Emergency order authorizes temporary spans for Middlebury this June

Posted on March 27, 2017 |
By Angelo Lynn



MIDDLEBURY — On Monday morning Vermont Transportation Secretary Joe Flynn issued an emergency order authorizing the Agency of Transportation (VTrans) to install two temporary bridges over the railroad tracks in downtown Middlebury in advance of a long-planned tunnel project.

While recent inspections have shown the bridges on Main Street and Merchants Row to be safe for travel, evidence of accelerated deterioration has prompted the agency to rapidly install temporary bridges this summer as a precautionary measure.

By Addison Independent



MIDDLEBURY — Why do American yogis blend Hinduism, Buddhism and Native American religions in their homilies and practice? More generally, why does American spirituality routinely blend indigenous and Asian traditions as evidenced by the “New Age” section of the average American bookstore?

Middlebury College visiting lecturer Amanda Lucia will address these questions in an April 6 lecture titled, “Romanticizing the Premodern: Charting Indices of Indigenous and Asian Religions in Contemporary American Spirituality.”

MIDDLEBURY — The deposits into Stanford Pritchard’s National Bank of Middlebury account arrive at random hours, but usually in the middle of the night.

Of course, that makes perfect sense. The funds come from a literary agency in Seoul, South Korea, and the day’s quietest hours in small-town Vermont are the busiest in a hub of Asian commerce.

MIDDLEBURY — Like most of us, Robin Ingenthron spent Tuesday weathering a major winter storm.

Actually, he’s had a lot of experience surviving storms of both the natural kind and those endemic to the business world.

Major setbacks threatened to bury his Middlebury enterprise, Good Point Recycling, several times during the past three years.

But Ingenthron refused to give up, and Good Point has emerged stronger than ever in a recycling industry that has chewed up and spit out many of his former competitors throughout the country.

MIDDLEBURY — The Middlebury selectboard on Tuesday revisited the upcoming effort to replace the downtown rail bridges and rebuild the railroad through downtown Middlebury, a state and federally funded project expected to run from 2018 to 2020 and include major disruption to the downtown in its final summer.

Chairman Brian Carpenter said the latest he heard from the Agency of Transportation is that agency officials are leaning toward installing temporary bridges sooner, rather than later, in order to make the entire project run more smoothly.

MIDDLEBURY — After two rounds of voting on Tuesday evening, the Middlebury selectboard emerged with a new vice chairwoman, Susan Shashok.

Shashok and incumbent vice chairman Nick Artim tied with three votes apiece after the first round, with Selectwomen Laura Asermily and Heather Seeley backing Shashok and Selectboard Chairman Brian Carpenter and Selectman Victor Nuovo backing Artim.
