Flower girls in Brandon_Generations Radler.jpg

BRANDON — Every year on the last Monday in May, a group of first-grade girls in white dresses clutch bunches of fresh lilacs in their small hands. They walk single file up Center Street from the Brandon Post Office, smiling and waving to their families and friends. They follow the American Legion Color Guard and the Otter Valley and Neshobe School marching bands, and are joined by the Pittsford and Brandon fire department engines. The small parade with a purpose makes its way to the gazebo in Central Park.

By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — More than 80 area residents turned out at the Middlebury State Airport on Tuesday evening to learn more about a proposed runway renovation/expansion project and voice their concerns about the possibility that those upgrades — and others laid out in a state airports master plan — could bring larger planes, heavier air traffic, more noise and possibly lighting to what is now a modest airfield surrounded by a residential area.

Posted on May 21, 2015 |
By Jessie Raymond



Ever since our two goats, Lucy and Jasper, decided that life inside a fence was just not for them, our yard has served as their all-you-can-eat buffet.

Posted on May 21, 2015 |
By Angelo Lynn



It’s Middlebury, Vt., vs. Bar Harbor, Maine, and it’s neck and neck.

The race is all about the sense of place and the stakes, as is usually the case in competition, is about … well, let’s just put it out there — it’s about pride and ego, and a bit of self-serving capitalism.
