By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — The Porter Medical Center (PMC) and University of Vermont Health Network (UVMHN) boards on Thursday voted unanimously to sign an affiliation agreement, a move that would result in reduced independence for Addison County’s hospital but net it greater financial stability, some key capital improvements and a more diverse menu of health care services for local patients.

Thursday’s board votes were a monumental step, but the affiliation move still hinges on some changes to Porter’s organizational bylaws.

Music has been used as a way to communicate and connect for a long time ? a way to come and go freely across cultures, borders and languages. The best part is that you don’t have to have a fancy degree or know all your scales; all you need to make music is the passion (a sense of rhythm helps, too).

n BristolFirehouse LEAD 8182.jpg

BRISTOL — The old North Street firehouse in Bristol has been standing empty since last July, when the Bristol Fire Department moved into its station on West Street.

Now three parties are vying to bring new life to the century-old building as a machinery museum, a bed and breakfast or a private residence.
