By John Flowers



MONTPELIER — Gov. Peter Shumlin on Jan. 5 exhorted lawmakers to attack such issues as health care reform, drug abuse and improving public education with the same zeal and creativity that Vermonters showed in rebuilding the state’s roads and bridges following Tropical Storm Irene last August.

The windmill, built in Barre by Northern Power Systems, will be owned and operated by Green Mountain Power, but the Vergennes job-training center will receive 10 percent of its power output.

MIDDLEBURY — Friday’s boys’ basketball game at Middlebury Union High School had everything one might hope for: atmosphere, a comeback, an outcome not decided until a final shot hit the rim, coaches engaged in a chess match, an outstanding individual performance, teamwork, clutch hoops and free throws, and even solid officiating.

By Andrew Stein



BRISTOL — Heading into its second year, Hogback Community College has doubled its course offerings and is expanding beyond the realm of ecology-focused classes to incorporate courses in health, acting and even homebrewing.
