Editorial: When good ideas are done well

Posted on August 11, 2011 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



That the inaugural Midd Summer Festival drew an overflow crowd of more than 1,500 people to sample cheese, beer, wine and other Vermont-based beverages had organizers and volunteers with the host Better Middlebury Partnership bubbling with excitement. That the unexpectedly large crowds caused longer than expected lines is, all things considered, the best of problems to have and will readily be corrected next year, organizers say.

Posted on August 11, 2011 |
By Andrea Warren



With a fresh chocolate creemee in hand, friends by my side and not a worry in the world, the ground slipped out from under me. The immense amount of rain had created a mudslide, which I didn’t intend to travel down.

The crowd turned to me for a laugh as I carefully stood up, with my right side covered in Addison County mud.

I giggled and quickly moved on. I had always loved playing in the mud but never thought to use it for a fashion statement at the fair.

NEW HAVEN — This was not what most people think of as typical fair food.

There was no cotton candy, no fried dough.

Nevertheless, regulars and newcomers alike packed the long tables in the Addison County Fair and Field Days dining hall Tuesday evening to share “The Taste of Vermont” dinner and chow down on hearty fare produced right here in the Green Mountain State.

Officials noted the dinners are a 23-year tradition of local eating.

Around the Bend: Summer fair glory proves elusive

Posted on August 11, 2011 |
By Jessie Raymond



Once again Addison County Fair and Field Days is here and once again I did not win the Leona Thompson Bowl.
