Posted on February 14, 2019 |
By John Flowers



BRISTOL — Several Addison County lawmakers on Monday said they’ll back legislation aimed at removing single-use plastic products — such as shopping bags — from Vermont’s waste stream.

Bills like H.74 — which proposes to prohibit food service establishments from providing carryout bags, expanded polystyrene food service products, and plastic straws to customers — drew considerable debate at a legislative breakfast at the Bristol American Legion post on Airport Road.

Posted on February 14, 2019 |
By ABAGAEL GILES



MIDDLEBURY — This past Friday, Feb. 8, Middlebury College distributed applications to 80 staff members for formal separation packages that include incentives for them to leave their positions.

The voluntary buyouts are the result of a workforce planning process that the college initiated in June 2018, with the goal of reducing the college’s roughly $10.6 million annual operating deficit. In a Feb. 8 statement, college officials said they expect about 50 full- and part-time staff members at its Middlebury campus to take advantage of the program.

BRISTOL — Mount Abraham Union High School’s aging innards continue to occupy school district officials with emergency repairs.

In January, several square feet of ceramic tile fell off the walls of the downstairs boys’ shower room, the result of leaky water pipes. Testing came back negative for asbestos, but positive for mold.

MIDDLEBURY — Usually if someone falls asleep within 90 seconds at your performance, you might be embarrassed. But not Andrew Noethiger.

“If someone’s snoring, I’m doing my job,” he said in an interview last month.

So what exactly does he do that he’s happy when his audience not only dozes off, but is so relaxed that they share their unencumbered cacophony?

VERGENNES — St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Vergennes has two grants in hand to fund repair of the Main Street church’s three stained-glass windows that overlook the sidewalk across from the city green. The church also has successfully applied for a grant it hopes will move forward a joint sidewalk and landscaping project.

Members of the downtown church’s Strategic Investment in Sacred Places committee are optimistic both of those projects can be done this year.

Inn on the green lady 46 CMYK.jpg

MIDDLEBURY — Chris and Chelsea Griggs got their first taste of the hospitality industry a few years ago. They had purchased a “fixer-upper” on Lake Dunmore in Salisbury, which they lovingly rehabbed and began renting out to help subsidize their investment.

No Refunds George & Jonny smiling cmyk.jpg

MONKTON — Anybody concerned about the “future of boys” should take a look at “No Refunds,” a vigorously playful and wonderfully messy YouTube channel created by three freshmen at Mount Abraham Union High School.

Inspired by Saturday Night Live and their favorite sports commentators, Monkton residents Jonny Armell, George Collette and (when he can make it) Tristan Parker head down to George’s mom’s basement every Tuesday afternoon, sit at a plastic conference table, hit record and let it fly.

MIDDLEBURY — Most of us probably don’t quite realize what we have in the Middlebury College Museum of Art. We say, “sure, it’s the college, of course they have an incredible museum of art” — perhaps in a similar way a New Yorker passes the MOMA with a shrug.
