MIDDLEBURY — The 2014 Addison County American Legion team will be a tough act to follow. A number of veterans, including the program’s top two hurlers, graduated from the squad that came up just one run short in late July’s Vermont championship game.
Still, said Coach Mike Estey, seven veterans return, most of whom played significant roles a year ago, to provide leadership as AC tries for a top-four Northern Division finish and the playoff berth that comes with it.
VERMONT — The Vermont Sports Media Association recently named Middlebury College standout and Middlebury native Katie Ritter as its Female March Athlete of the Month.
Also honored in statewide balloting of VSMA members was Rice Memorial High School junior Kendrick Gray as the March Male Athlete of the Month.

The Ferrisburgh selectboard took the bold action of rejecting three of five proposed solar arrays filed this past month saying that the proposed locations would pose “an extreme visual impact.” But there’s a problem: the town doesn’t have a lot of say. As in the case of all Vermont solar arrays, towns can express their approval or disapproval, but the Public Service Board holds all the cards.
People should put the common good ahead of their self interests when it comes to something as serious as immunizations. Vermont just passed a law that prohibits philosophical exemptions. Hopefully, this law will provide protection in our community for the future. This might prevent parents from putting their child at risk as well as ill individuals, infants and the elderly who have a low immune system and cannot receive the vaccinations.
Having read about the plans for the much needed repairs that will cause upheaval in the center of Middlebury village, I have two comments.
On behalf of Agri-Mark, Inc., I would like to express our very strong, continued support for the extension of the natural gas pipeline from Chittenden County to Middlebury.
