Bristol youth put new spin on pageant

Posted on December 9, 2010 |
By Tamara Hilmes



BRISTOL — Though the Bristol Christmas pageant will include the traditional Mary, Joseph and baby Jesus, complete with manger and barnyard animals, this year’s pageant takes on a rather untraditional format.

Seventeen-year-old Thomas Ahern, who has been taking a film class at the Patricia A. Hannaford Career Center, volunteered to film and edit a video version of the Christmas story that will premiere at the First Baptist Church of Bristol on Sunday, Dec. 12, on 4:30 p.m.

Clippings: Youthful innocence is too stressful

Posted on December 9, 2010 |
By Trent Campbell



The Christmas season is here and as an adult I am supposed to be completely stressed out. Shopping, family gatherings, overeating and Yankee swaps are supposed to push me to the edge. I am supposed to feel bad that I am not a kid anymore and get depressed that my quest to recapture the innocence of my childhood will never be fulfilled. I say “Bah Humbug” to all that. The Christmas season actually makes me feel really good and, frankly, I think kids are the one who experience the most stress during the holidays.

Good day to root for my favorite teams

Posted on December 9, 2010 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



Monday proved to be a fine day to be a Boston sports fan, but only after plenty of drama.
Full disclosure: I spent the 1960s and most of the ’70s calling southeastern Massachusetts home. I developed a lifelong attachment to the Boston sports teams whether they were good — the Celtics and Bruins — or horrific — the Sox before 1967 and the Patriots for most of their existence.

Architect recalls Vt. vernacular

Posted on December 9, 2010 |
By Tamara Hilmes



MIDDLEBURY — Architect Turner Brooks grew up visiting the Ferrisburgh home of family friend Clement Hurd, illustrator of the beloved children’s book “Goodnight Moon.” Brooks still references the whimsical illustrations today when describing his own design work.

“There’s an incredible, strong juxtaposition of the intimate and the infinite,” he said during his recent lecture at Middlebury College, pointing during a slide showing to one of Hurd’s drawings of the bunny’s cozy bedroom with the lone window displaying the infinite night sky.

Brandon businesses showing new vitality

Posted on December 9, 2010 |
By Lee J. Kahrs



BRANDON — The downtown Brandon business community has been through a rough patch, but it is seeing signs of light.
The last few years have meant more empty storefronts on Park and Center streets, but despite “The Great Recession” six new businesses have moved in over the last six months, with four opening in November alone. As a testament to the hard work and creativity of Brandon residents, every one of these businesses is locally owned and operated.
What follows is a brief description of the new businesses.
ADORNMENT STUDIO AND GALLERY, 47 CENTER ST.

Politically Thinking: Local rail upgrade gets new chance

Posted on December 9, 2010 |
By Eric L. Davis



One of the most important infrastructure projects in Vermont is the upgrade of the western rail corridor from Rutland through Middlebury to Burlington. Improvements to this line would enable passenger rail service to be extended north from Rutland to Burlington. The rebuilt line would also allow more freight to be shipped to and from Vermont by rail rather than by road.

Between the Lines: Choosing a tree, and a life

Posted on December 9, 2010 |
By Gregory Dennis



It’s way too early to get a Christmas tree, I said.

But V. and S. had other ideas.

I grew up in a family that reserved the annual finding and cutting of the tree until the day of Christmas Eve. To their way of thinking, the day after Thanksgiving isn’t too early.

The first weekend of December, in my childhood experience, was for paging through the Sears catalog and figuring out if you were going to ask Santa for a new bike or a Fanner Fifty cap gun.
