MIDDLEBURY — Most dance troupes stage shows designed to exhibit the years of training their dancers have.

This weekend the Big Action Performance Ensemble seeks to throw that notion out the window in two shows at the Town Hall Theater.

The Friday and Saturday performances will feature the Big APE dance troupe’s eight professional dancers, plus 27 members of the local community, ranging in age from 8 to 74. Composer, DJ and recent Middlebury College graduate Phillipe Bronchtein provides original music for the show.

St. Patrick’s Day: I like it when my day to write this column falls on a holiday.

My first wife was born on St. Patrick’s Day, which made it easy for me to remember her birthday (editor’s note: no ex-wife wisecracks). My second wife’s birthday is Valentine’s Day, which I can also remember, but can’t get dinner reservations.

By Andrew Stein



BRISTOL — Bristol selectmen learned at a Monday meeting that plans for repair of two key bridges in town are coming together, but that residents should not expect for the spans to be in full working order any time soon.

A highway official explained the state’s multi-year plans for repairing the one-lane bridge on Route 116 that crosses the New Haven River in the southern part of town, and town officials signed an agreement that will lead to repair of the closed bridge at the base of South Street just below the village.

Pellet bag disposal raises environmental questions

Posted on March 17, 2011 |

ADDISON COUNTY — Until early this year, plastic disposal was not an issue that Ferrisburgh resident Ann Poskas had to think too hard about.

Havens perseveres as lungs begin to fail

MIDDLEBURY — Eddie Havens has spent the past 28 years making sure the Middlebury Union High School building has been in tip-top condition for teachers to teach and students to learn.

But recent months have seen Havens, a 52-year-old custodian at MUHS, do a little teaching of his own while tidying up the campus. And it’s a lesson steeped in courage and built on a real-life testimonial on the dangers of smoking.

MIDDLEBURY — An idea that started as a blog post last summer may become the newest field of study at Middlebury College.
