Bluegrass Gospel Project 14.jpg

VERGENNES — Musicians are a tricky bunch. Passionate — yes. Playful — absolutely. Committed to their music — more than anything. So why is it that so many of our beloved bands break up?

In the case of the Bluegrass Gospel Project, their lead vocalist Colby Crehan is moving west for her husband’s new job at Grand Teton National Park, and the band figured it was as good a time as any to call it quits. They’re playing their last concert this Saturday evening at the Vergennes Opera House.

BRISTOL — The old Bristol firehouse at 32 North St. will soon have a new owner, if all goes as planned. Last week, the Bristol selectboard unanimously chose William Gibbs’ proposal to renovate and restore the historic 120-year-old structure.

“She will be a gem in the town when I get done,” Gibbs had told the selectboard when he and the other contenders presented their vision for the 1897 building earlier in February.

MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury College Professor Allison Stanger was injured by protesters Thursday evening as she was escorting a controversial speaker from campus. She was treated at Porter Hospital and released.

He was greeted late Thursday afternoon outside McCullough Student Center by hundreds of protesters, and inside Wilson Hall, students turned their backs to him and booed when he got up to speak.

MIDDLEBURY — Town Meeting Day business is most often about beginnings — the start of a political career, the minting of a new budget or the launching of a new program.

But Town Meeting Day ballots in the seven Addison Central School District (ACSD) towns on Tuesday will signal an end of what has been, in some cases, a centuries-old tradition of local school boards.

MIDDLEBURY — Mary Hogan Elementary School students Dahlia Harrison and Nell Brayton learned a couple of important lessons during the past month that can’t be taught in the classroom.
