MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury College and Middlebury town officials have abandoned preliminary plans announced this spring to build a community biomass-fired power plant that would have powered college and town facilities. But representatives from the town and the college are gearing up instead to explore a new collaboration for a “biomass purchasing cooperative” and community renewable energy fund.

ADDISON — At the entrance to the DeVries family’s Dairydale Farm in Addison, there’s a sign up announcing to passersby that this tidy spread is a Vermont “Dairy of Distinction.”

The sign may still be there, but the farm’s 150 cows are gone.

Sam and Dave DeVries, brothers and partners in the Dairydale operation, milked their herd one last time on an afternoon in mid-June, and then ambled outside among the large crowd to watch their livelihood go up for auction.

Snapshots: Morgan Wolaver

When it comes to where we live and what we consume, Vermonters never run out of declarations to color the state’s portrait: green, organic, natural, fair-trade, local.

But when Morgan Wolaver, owner and president of Otter Creek Brewing and the man behind the one of the first organic ales in the country, stepped into a bar more than a decade ago, he was surprised to see the word “organic” on a beer label. At that point, organic milk, eggs, fruit and veggies were standard, but organic beer was still an oxymoron.

Posted on September 11, 2009 |
By Jeff Byers



There! Did that title grab your attention? I love running in September – the days are cooler, the skies are sunnier, and I am starting to reap the benefits of running through the hot, sticky days of midsummer. It is a great time to take on some longer runs, and with that in mind, I will be describing a 9+ mile run which very few people other than me know about.
