College adopts "no-mow" policy

Mow no more — or, at the very least, less. The grounds crew at the Middlebury College has reduced the amount of lawn they mow by 20 acres this summer, allowing pockets of the landscape to return to flower-filled meadows. Previously, the school has mowed roughly 75 acres of lawn on the main campus each summer — which took seven employees moving for three full days to complete one mowing cycle.

MIDDLEBURY — Longtime Middlebury Union High School varsity football coach Peter Brakeley will return to the sidelines this fall and lead a Tiger squad, but will not return to the same post he left a year ago for medical reasons.

Instead, Brakeley, a cancer patient who also in January returned to his Middlebury Union Middle School teaching job after a medical leave, will take the reins of the MUHS junior varsity football team. He will replace his son, Gus Brakeley, who will assist the Middlebury College football program.

The Bristol Planning Commission took a welcome stance last week when it staked out a more thorough process to solicit public comment on gravel and resource extraction that would be included in its revised town plan.

It has finally put a full-court press on gathering public opinion on this controversial topic — but, hey, better late than never.

VARS marks 40 years of growth and saving lives

VERGENNES — On Saturday, May 10, 1969, Vergennes resident Jim McEvilla responded to a ringing phone, raced to city hall, fired up a Chevrolet station wagon parked in the rear garage and drove off to a nearby medical emergency.

That was the first of 94 calls in the first year in what is now the 40-year history of the Vergennes Area Rescue Squad.

That’s a far cry from the most recent 12 months, when VARS’ three ambulances, with full crews and complements of life-saving equipment and drugs, responded to about 860 calls for help from its Panton Road headquarters.
