Plans take shape for Middlebury fire station efforts

Posted on January 20, 2011 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — An ad hoc committee is putting together plans for a major makeover of Middlebury’s fire stations, and local fire officials are scheduled to update residents on those plans at town meeting in March. A bond vote could follow later this year.

“My hope is we would have something to the voters by this summer or fall,” Middlebury Fire Department Chief Rick Cole said on Monday. “We don’t want to rush into anything, but we want to keep things moving.”

Dairy farmers await court decision

Posted on January 20, 2011 |
By Andrea Suozzo



ADDISON COUNTY — Addison County dairy farmers may stand to receive some cold, hard cash, pending the U.S. District Court of Vermont’s approval of a settlement agreement submitted in late December.

The Dean Foods Company and representative dairy farmers are waiting for court approval on a $30 million settlement that the two parties signed last month, which would conclude one part of a months-long class-action suit that accused three companies of price-fixing and illegal monopolizing of the Northeast dairy market.

A relic, a shrine, Hoop Heaven: a gym

Posted on January 20, 2011 |
By Karl Lindholm



What a coincidence!

I was in Maine visiting family last Saturday when the Middlebury basketball teams just happened to be in Lewiston to play against Bates College. So I decided to take in the men’s and women’s games (I actually watched Bates play Williams the night before, too).

Bates plays their basketball games in Alumni Gymnasium. Constructed in 1928, it’s the oldest New England college gym still hosting varsity basketball, and indeed one of the oldest such arenas in the country.

Clippings: School testing results can mislead

Posted on January 20, 2011 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



School testing seems to be in the news constantly, partly thanks to the “No Child Left Behind” act — NCLB, pronounced as nickel-bee by anyone who works in or covers schools, or works on laws that affect them.

There are a few things the general public should, but may not in all cases, know about tests. First, most probably know they measure students’ knowledge in the core subjects of language, math and science.

Something many may not know is that tests do OK at evaluating students’ grasp of core content.

Posted on January 20, 2011 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



What do towns need to thrive in today’s global economy? How do we counter the loss of manufacturing jobs? How do we lay a solid economic foundation for tomorrow’s economy?

How do we prepare for things that we cannot yet know?

Here’s a suggestion: Let’s be part of communities that move forward.

Forget the details for a moment; embrace the concept.

Between the Lines: The tracks of John Boehner's tears

Posted on January 20, 2011 |
By Gregory Dennis



Pity the poor liberals. They spent decades convincing Americans that it was a good thing for women to be strong, high-profile leaders. So who comes along and grabs the mantle of the high-profile political woman? Not a liberal, but the dreaded Sarah Palin.

Then after years of creating space for men to be more in touch with their feelings, liberals have to watch new Speaker of the House John Boehner — he of the tough-guy politics and country club demeanor — become the most emotive man in public life.

It’s enough to make progressives want to go out and burn a bra.
