MIDDLEBURY — State officials will be in Middlebury on Tuesday to get local feedback on a controversial proposal by Vermont Education Commissioner Richard Cate to dramatically reduce the number of supervisory unions in Vermont.
Cate and his staff are in the midst of a 30-town tour to promote new education governance ideas and solicit feedback from citizens, local school directors and administrators who would be affected if the commissioner’s plans are put into motion by state lawmakers.

NEW HAVEN — A local family has stepped forward to express an interest in buying the Dana-King House, a historic home owned by the town and located next to New Haven’s town offices. Raymond and Deborah Fortier of New Haven said that, if possible, they would like to buy the house and move it to their property at 216 North St., keeping it in the village but not on town property.
“I’ve always loved it. Every time I’ve gone to an event there, I thought it was so pretty,” said Deborah Fortier. “I didn’t want to see the house torn down or taken away.”
