“When I use a word,” Humpty Dumpty said in rather a scornful tone, “it means just what I choose it to mean — nothing more nor less.”
“The question is,” said Alice, “whether you can make words mean so many different things.”

Helen Porter Healthcare and Rehabilitation Center gives a great big THANK YOU to all of you who worked with us to make this year’s Lighted Pumpkin Patch possible with over 700 carved and lit pumpkins as well as 200 luminaries cut by the Durham family. This is truly a community event, both supported and enjoyed by our community that literally hundreds of our area residents are a part of.
LEXINGTON, Va. — The Middlebury College field hockey team edged previously undefeated and top-ranked Bowdoin 1-0, in a game played at Washington and Lee on Sunday to win its second NCAA Division III championship and its first since 1998.
The 20-2 Panthers, who began the tournament ranked No. 3, set a school record for wins and in the tournament defeated No. 5 Franklin & Marshall, No. 6 William Smith and, in a Saturday semifinal, No. 2 The College of New Jersey, the defending champion, 4-1.
MIDDLEBURY — The Neil Sinclair coaching era began for the Middlebury College men’s hockey team with a solid weekend at Chip Kenyon Arena against two NESCAC foes, a 4-0 win over Colby on Saturday and a 4-4 tie vs. Bowdoin on Sunday.
Still, the Panthers came close to a sweep of their league foes, taking a 4-1 first-period lead on Sunday before Bowdoin worked its way back.

As the new local food access coordinator for HOPE I was thrilled to attend the Empty Soup Bowl Dinner in early November. The Middlebury Natural Foods Co-op put together a wonderful evening, and I was thankful to see so many folks coming together to try alleviate food insecurity in Addison County through contributions to HOPE and CVOEO.
In this season of gratitude, the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Vergennes and the Vergennes Partnership want to express their thanks to the many organizations and individuals who contributed so much to this year’s Pumpkins in the Park event.
Five churches, eight restaurants, two service organizations, two city departments and five members of the accordion-playing Vorsteveld family all lent a hand, showing once again that the spirit of cooperation is alive and well in the greater Vergennes community.
