Snapshots: Hank Dimuzio

Posted on August 14, 2009 |
By Chelsey Pletts



Two years ago a Valentine’s Day blizzard swept through Middlebury, leaving behind a wall of snow.

For Hank Dimuzio, this was a problem.

His eight-foot high wire fences, designed to keep his herd of fallow deer inside, now rose a stunted four feet to Dimuzio’s shoulder as the snow created an icy stepladder to the other side. Dimuzio was astonished to find most of his herd huddled under their shelter near the top of his farm. But others were stranded on the outskirts of the far paddock where a grove of evergreens provided shelter.

By Kathryn Flagg



MONKTON — When Monkton resident Nora Parren was casting around for a way to drum up scholarship money, the Vassar College student assumed she’d be left to writing essays until the end of time.

So when she stumbled across a contest sponsored by the Environmental Protection Agency challenging students to create videos promoting water quality, Parren was pleasantly surprised. A hobby animator, for some time she’d been making stop-motion videos in her dorm room.

Table Talk: Gardening for savings

A weekly blog about everything from farming food to cooking it

“The old Pennsylvania Dutch, they waste nothing,” said Don Rinker.

He and his wife Eileen grew up in northern Pennsylvania gardening, preserving and freezing all summer to prepare for the winters. They retired to New Haven in 2000, bringing with them the frugal traditions they had always practiced.

Don showed me the dryer that he and his wife Eileen use to preserve the wax beans they grow: It is a broad metal pan with a walled off corner for water.

Snapshots: Lucien Paquette

By Chelsey Pletts



One day out of the year, a fair came to Craftsbury, Vermont. Adelard and Mary Paquette lived on a modest farm about five miles from Craftsbury Common, where the fair was held. Their seven children looked forward to the fair, and though the Great Depression wringed wallets dry, Mary gave her third son Lucien a quarter to spend on sweets at the festival. Lucien returned later that day with 20 cents and a five-cent pack of chewing gum for his mother.

Table Talk: Field Days Food

A weekly blog about everything from farming food to cooking it

Food stands lined the dirt paths of the fairgrounds, their colorful signs screaming “Zeppoles!” “‘Fresh squeezed’ lemonade!” “Fried Oreos!” “Italian sausage!” Yesterday was the first day of the 51st annual Addison County Fair and Field Days, and it was already crowded.

The people strolling the paths, licking ice cream, drinking sodas, eating delicious-smelling fried things had whipped my head into a frenzied state, and I was hungry.

An update on Brighter Planet and carbon footprints

Posted on August 4, 2009 |
By Kathryn Flagg



Reporter John Flowers chimed in last week with news from Bright Planet. The Middlebury start-up is based just a hop, skip, and a jump from our own Marble Works headquarters, so naturally we've been paying attention to what the resident environmentalists are up to.

By Chelsey Pletts



Jackie Rose looks back to a point in her life over 20 years ago when she met her soul mate. Given the opportunity to do it over again, she wouldn’t change a thing — except where she picked him up.

Now, she says, “I know better.”

After almost two decades of waiting, Rose was finally in a position to start her search for “the right one.” She just bought her first home in Florida and had a budding career: it was time.
