I read somewhere that the best way to tell a person’s true age is to look at their hands. Thanks to the intersection of our vanity with innovations in technology and medicine, it’s now possible to camouflage signs of age in the body, face, hair, and teeth. But as far as I know, not much can be done about wrinkled, mottled, vein—y hands.
Hands may just be the real Picture of Dorian Grey.
ADDISON — The Addison Central School Board on Thursday accepted the recommendation of its search committee and Addison Northwest Supervisory Union Superintendent Tom O’Brien to bring aboard Vergennes Union High School French teacher Matthew DeBlois as the school’s new principal.
VERGENNES — About 100 Vergennes-area residents gathered at the Vergennes Opera House on Wednesday and pledged — with the help of the Vermont Council on Rural Development — to improve the city’s economic climate, Otter Creek river basin, and transportation infrastructure.
MIDDLEBURY — A new survey that will help Middlebury plan its retail future has already drawn more than 800 responses, leaving organizers optimistic they will get a clear picture of what locals and visitors want to see in terms of future shopping opportunities.

MIDDLEBURY — Charlotte LaFayette-McConnell, the two-and-a-half-year-old Middlebury girl who was seriously injured after being struck by an SUV on Weybridge Street on April 1, has now moved to a rehabilitation center in Boston to undergo what could be a lengthy period of therapy on her road to what physicians believe will be a full recovery.
MIDDLEBURY — The Addison Central Supervisory Union board and the three unions representing district teachers have signed off on a new, three-year agreement that affords educators average annual salary increases of around 3.6 percent and requires them to pay 15 percent of their health care premiums by the third year of the pact.
BRISTOL — The Bristol Fire Facility Site Selection Committee will recommend a location for a new town firehouse at the selectboard meeting Monday evening.
“We’re ready to go in there and bring the selectboard up to speed on where we’re at,” committee member and Bristol Fire Department Chief Brett LaRose said late last week.
MIDDLEBURY — While the name above the door may change, downtown Middlebury will keep its diner. After 25 years of successful operation, owners Steve and Beth Dow have handed over the keys to Steve’s Park Diner to Caetlin Harwood and Carl Roesch.
“The National Restaurant Association figures the average age of a restaurant is between three to four years,” Steve Dow said after closing on the sale on April 14. “I figured I beat the odds.”
