Clippings: Final whistle ended chapter of life

Posted on April 24, 2014 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



This past Saturday morning the dogs and I went for our usual morning walk, along Buttolph Drive, left through the Memorial Sports Center parking lot and out toward the grass of the Middlebury Recreation Park.

Jessie Raymond: New dog wins over avowed cat lover

Posted on April 24, 2014 |
By Jessie Raymond



"Are you a dog person or a cat person?”

I hate that question. There are days when I don’t even consider myself a people person. Why bring pets into it?

Anyway, there is only one acceptable answer. While there are certainly people who prefer cats over dogs, we all know that it’s social suicide to admit it.

If you say you’re a dog person, people trust you.

Town seeks grant for warming hut repairs

Posted on April 24, 2014 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — The Middlebury selectboard on Tuesday agreed to apply for up to $10,000 in state grant funding for improvements to the municipal “warming hut” off Buttolph Drive. The warming hut was once used as a changing facility by hockey athletes playing at the nearby Memorial Sports Center. But the sports center now has its own locker rooms, and the warming hut is being groomed as a gathering spot for Addison Central Teens, which currently meets in the municipal building basement.

It is legal to revote on something (just one time) if 5 percent of the voters sign a petition that is presented within 30 days of the original vote. In this case 230 legal voters needed to sign such a petition. This is democracy and while it isn’t perfect or easy, it is the best system out there.

For clarification, Article 1 (previous Article 6) reads:
