Tigers claim softball win over county rival Mt. Abe

softballthrow.jpg

By ANDY KIRKALDY

MIDDLEBURY — In a Tuesday duel between high school softball teams enjoying solid springs, host Middlebury claimed 6-3 win over Mount Abraham, leaving both teams’ records at 7-4.

The win avenged the Tigers’ 14-6 loss at Mount Abe last spring that had continued the Eagles’ recent success against MUHS.

Winning pitcher Lea Gipson, a junior who allowed two hits and five walks and struck out six, didn’t have an exactly accurate memory of the 2008 score, but summed up the Tigers’ feelings on Tuesday’s win perfectly.

By JOHN FLOWERS

MIDDLEBURY — When the Vermont State Craft Center (VSCC) at Frog Hollow closed its doors early this year, the Middlebury area not only lost a gallery in which to display local artists’ wares, but also a school at which students could learn how to create their own arts and crafts.

The past few months have seen a homeless VSCC offer some classes at temporary venues. But now five longtime VSCC associates have joined forces to create a new “Middlebury Studio School Inc.” that they hope will fill the arts education void left by VSCC.

By ANDY KIRKALDY

VERGENNES — Two decisions by Vergennes officials in the past two weeks brought a proposed 25-unit senior housing plan on Armory Lane closer to reality. The main applicants are Housing Vermont Inc. and the Addison County Community Trust.

On May 4, the city’s development review board approved the plan for the housing, which includes a library, a “country kitchen area” that could host 40 people, and an activity area large enough for 60 people.

VERGENNES — In a fast-paced, well-pitched baseball game at Vergennes Union High School on Saturday punctuated by good defensive plays, two mistakes by the host Commodores allowed U-32 to take a 2-0 victory.

The Raiders, whose college-scouted pitcher, Corey Johnson, tossed a tidy three-hitter, improved to 7-2. The Commodores, whose senior hurler Adam Flynn allowed just two unearned runs, saw their three-game winning streak snapped and dropped to 7-5.

ADDISON COUNTY — It’s not just bricks-and-mortar bookstores — which have long faced competition from online booksellers like Amazon.com — that are in trouble these days.

Books themselves could be on the way out.

Last week’s tech buzz swirled around the Kindle DX, Amazon’s electronic reader that some technology enthusiasts predict could mean the death of the book as we know it.
