MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury police and fire officials continue to investigate a suspicious fire that ravaged a duplex apartment building at 74 Court St. and significantly damaged two adjacent structures during the early morning of Monday, June 10.

“There could really have been loss of life here,” Shaw said.

BRISTOL — Guiding children with stringed instruments from “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star” to, say, Franz Schubert’s “Unfinished Symphony” (No. 8 in B minor) requires a vast amount of knowledge and patience, plus, it would seem, a fair bit of magic.
