VERMONT — A bill passed in June by the U.S. Senate would overhaul the nation’s immigration policy and grant legal protection to foreign nationals already working in the country.
Vermont dairy farmers are looking for immigration reform such as this because they find it difficult to fulfill their labor needs without a federally recognized legal status for all migrant workers. Those farms increasingly depend on foreign labor due to a lack of available labor.
MIDDLEBURY — For an entire week in November Middlebury’s Town Hall Theater will be overrun with young performers.
MIDDLEBURY — Restaurateur and chef Michel Mahe said he’s shooting for a February 2014 opening for his latest gastronomic enterprise that will be located in the former Jackson’s on the River space at 7 Bakery Lane in Middlebury.
Mahe explained that permitting and some changes in renovation plans have delayed what he had originally hoped would be a spring-summer 2013 opening for the as-yet-unnamed restaurant. Interior renovations have been ongoing for the past four months.
We all remember where we were when we heard the news.
I was in Miss Howard’s classroom.
It’s funny the little things you recall from 50 years ago. Miss Howard was young, pretty and friendly. But she was overweight, and everyone knew she would have a hard time finding a husband.
My classmates and I spent the time before and after school that fall playing touch football, and arguing about whether the ball carrier had actually been touched with two hands or just one.
