East Middlebury residents wary of airport upgrades

Posted on December 4, 2014 |
By John Flowers



EAST MIDDLEBURY — Vermont aviation officials are seeking federal funding to extend and widen the runway at the Middlebury State Airport. But some neighbors of the East Middlebury facility are hoping the project remains grounded due to concerns about a potential increase in air traffic and the required pruning of some buffer trees along the takeoff and landing approaches.

At issue is a proposal to lengthen the Middlebury Airport runway by 700 feet, to a total of 3,200 feet, and also widen it from the current 50 feet, to 60 feet.

MIDDLEBURY — More than 100 students, faculty and staff stood, silently, arms raised in front of Mead Chapel on the campus of Middlebury College Monday afternoon.

The time was 1:01 p.m., the same time of day that Michael Brown was shot dead by a police officer on Aug. 9 in Ferguson, Mo. The shooting of the 18-year-old black man reignited a national discussion on racism and police brutality, especially after a grand jury last week declined to bring charges against the officer, Darren Wilson.

Hopkins on Mayflower_8480.jpg

BRANDON — Four-year-old Renata Hopkins came running up to her guest with a giggle, and a joke

“If April showers bring May flowers, what do May flowers bring?” she asked, barely able to contain herself.

Snow.jpg

MIDDLEBURY — Addison County’s 23 towns bore the brunt of a Thanksgiving Eve snowstorm that blanketed Vermont and much of the Northeast on the busiest travel day of the year.

Forecasters from the National Weather Service office in South Burlington said Addison County got more snow than any other county in Vermont, ranging from 8 inches in Vergennes to 16.5 inches in Orwell.

“That was the jackpot area,” said NWS meteorologist Andrew Loconto. “There was a pretty good snowband which dropped some good amounts across the county.”
