Nothing makes me smile quite like the first cool morning of fall. And boy, did fall come suddenly this year.
I was asleep when it happened, but the National Weather Service reports that the seasons unofficially changed at 2:48 a.m. on Sunday morning. With a whoosh, out went swimming holes and sunburns, and in came football and infinity scarves.
Opioid use disorder is a chronic illness which like many other chronic diseases requires long-term management to ensure recovery. What is this care? What does it look like? How is it being administered? Are you in long-term recovery? Do you know someone in long-term recovery?
Brandon Cares is offering an open forum on Long Term Recovery from opiate use. The opiate problem in our communities affects us all. Come and listen and ask questions. Learn what is being done and what we all can do.

For the last several years the Middlebury Rotary has erected American flags around town on national holidays. Local businesses, Rotarians, and other supportive citizens have underwritten the flag project. This year an additional commemoration was begun — installation on national holidays of American flags with veteran plaques (name, rank, branch of service, and if served in combat) in Cannon Park. Over 50 veterans have been honored with these flags and plaques. Middlebury Rotary member Tim Hollander conceived the idea.

We are doing our best to show up at your team’s games this fall, really. But it’s been difficult.
To start with, many local high school sports teams have opened on the road. For example, two teams we haven’t seen yet, Mount Abraham and Middlebury field hockey, played four of their first five and five of their first six games, respectively, away from their home turf.
Those other two games? Wednesdays.
