MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury police handled a variety of incidents between March 13 and 19, including helping motorists during last week’s snowstorm, ticketing and ordering towed cars parked in violation of the town’s winter overnight ban, and handling cases of credit theft and alleged digital blackmail.

• On March 13 checked the welfare of a Jayne Court resident, who was found to be OK.
• On March 13 calmed an argument outside a Mead Lane apartment building.
VERGENNES — Last week’s major snowstorm kept Vergennes police busy. On March 14 and 15, police ticketed and ordered towed several vehicles left overnight on city streets in violation in the wintertime parking ban.
On March 14, Vergennes police and department of public works personnel helped several commercial and private vehicles northbound on Main Street that struggled to get up the hill near the bridge over Otter Creek. Several of the vehicles had slid off the road.

LEICESTER — When Adam Young worked in the dishroom at the Brandon Inn, he may not have imagined he would become an acclaimed pastry chef. But if you ask Brandon Inn co-owner and chef Louis Pattis, Young was something special from the start.
“That kid is the hardest worker you could ever find,” Pattis said. “Work for him was just something he had to do, no complaints.”
MIDDLEBURY — The members of Porter Medical Center voted unanimously at the PMC annual meeting last Wednesday night to amend the Porter bylaws, which represented the final step for the Middlebury institution to complete an affiliation with the University of Vermont Health Network.

BRISTOL — Thirty-one Main Street in Bristol has seen its fair share of turnover. Most recently it was ND’s Bar, before that, Dan’s Place, Reggie’s and No-Knee’s. Now it’s Hatch 31.
Sisters Sarah and Kayla Wisell, and their cousin Roberta Sinnock opened Hatch 31’s doors two years ago this May with the help of their father/uncle Matt Wisell. They spent the first month renovating the place.
