BRISTOL — There’s a saying that, once something exists online, it can’t be destroyed. A photograph posted to a Facebook account is logged in search records and Internet caches. Pull it down, if you like, but know that a digital copy is probably pinging around in the ether, like it or not.

In a sense, that information is immortal.

The 2.3-acre park sits on Maple Street on the Vergennes city line and has frontage on Otter Creek.

FERRISBURGH — Porter Hospital midwife Martha Redpath had just returned to her Ferrisburgh home from a long night attending two births when husband Gary Lange asked what she would like to do for her 52nd birthday, which was coming up a couple days later on Feb. 3.

What Redpath ended up getting for her birthday — albeit belatedly on Feb. 13 — could be called priceless, although it came with a figure: $11,116.

Middlebury senior home closing

By Kathryn Flagg



MIDDLEBURY — After 25 years in the senior care business, the owners of Addison House announced last week that they’re shutting the doors to the College Street community care facility.

Owners Sharon Thompson, Barbara O’Hehir and Marcia Wheeler notified the home’s staff and residents last week that the facility would be shutting down in 90 days. They’ve been gearing up to close for a year, Thompson said, but wanted to take the transition slowly to affect the fewest residents possible.

Addison House is home to seven residents, down from a high of 17.

ACSU delays action on Willey

Posted on February 22, 2010 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — The Addison Central Supervisory Union (ACSU) board on Wednesday chose not to take action on Associate Superintendent Janice Willey’s letter of resignation and instead ordered a study of the working climate in the district office.

The ACSU board reached that decision after a lengthy executive session during which members discussed Willey’s letter, which she submitted this past Dec. 14. Willey had cited a sudden change in her duties — allegedly without her input — as the reason for her decision to step down this June after 14 years as associate superintendent.
