ADDISON COUNTY — The average price of a well-balanced meal in the United States is around $2.70, according to the hunger relief charity Feeding America. In Vermont, the average is closer to $3.14, and in Addison County, the figure rises again, to $3.66.

A nonprofit organization launched last year by a group of Middlebury College students has found a way to cut prices to around $1.50 by distributing food boxes at locations throughout Addison County.

MIDDLEBURY — Porter Medical Center and the Counseling Service of Addison County (CSAC) will join forces to substantially expand the county’s only Suboxone program to help opiate addicts, a move that will allow Bristol Internal Medicine to deliver the much-needed service to 80-90 patients, up from the current 25.

The Porter board approved the expanded Suboxone program last week, and did so even with the prospect of a $200,000 annual budget hit.

PANTON — For most of her 30 years in retail, about half of them spent working her way up in the Jolley Associates chain of convenience stores, Bridport native Linda Goodspeed dreamed of running her own country store.

In the first weekend of June, that dream came true for Goodspeed, 51, who now lives in Vergennes with her husband, John.

That’s when Goodspeed threw open the front door of the Panton General Store, which former owner Andy Megroz had decided last fall to shut down at least for the winter.

MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury Regional EMS has decided to resurrect its practice of asking for Town Meeting Day contributions from the 10 towns it serves, money the organization will place in a fund for future capital needs.
