By Gaen Murphree



BRISTOL — Bristol attorney Jim Dumont believes his latest salvo against Vermont Gas Systems’ Addison Natural Gas Project has the potential to stop the pipeline in its tracks.

MIDDLEBURY — Yom Kippur — the holiest day on the Jewish calendar — is about atonement, “a day to seek God’s forgiveness for our transgressions,” says Dr. Jack Mayer, a beloved local pediatrician and budding author.

So it seems only fitting that Mayer should become so inspired by a Yom Kippur sermon back in 1992 that he would spend the next 24 years faithfully penning a compelling story of redemption, centering on a villain in one of the darkest periods in human history: The birth of the Third Reich in Germany.
