ADDISON COUNTY — Marie Audet of Bridport and Paul Ralston of New Haven are hoping to become the first two independents to ever occupy the two state Senate seats representing Addison County, Huntington and Buel’s Gore.

Ralston, the founder and CEO of Vermont Coffee Company, and Audet, a co-owner of Blue Spruce Farm in Bridport, officially entered the race early this month. They join a field that includes incumbent Sen. Christopher Bray, D-New Haven, Democrat Ruth Hardy of Middlebury and Addison Republican Peter Briggs.

Posted on August 16, 2018 |
By Christopher Ross



charterhouse7721.jpg

MIDDLEBURY — As homelessness becomes more visible downtown and more of a concern, Middlebury’s homeless shelter, the Charter House, will open six weeks early this year.

Doug Sinclair, co-executive director of the Charter House Coalition, said that in spite of uncertain funding the shelter on North Pleasant Street would open its doors on Sept. 1 this year rather than operating from mid-October to April as it has in prior years.

DonTurner7394.jpg

MIDDLEBURY — Don Turner must be glad there aren’t more than 24 hours in a day. If there were, he’d have more time in which to cram additional public service and business activities into an already otherworldly schedule.

Turner, 54, is currently a Realtor, landlord, firefighter, fire instructor, justice of the peace, fire warden, rescue squad volunteer, town manager and lawmaker — all for his hometown of Milton.

For many 7-year-olds, aspirations about what they want to be “when they grow up” include dolphin trainer, inventor, astronaut, circus performer, or another wildly fantastical job that in reality rarely comes to pass.

But dreams do come true.

Posted on August 13, 2018 |
By Nick Garber



ADDISON COUNTY — Every vote counts — especially when there are very few of them.

Most signs point to that being the case in the Tuesday, Aug. 14 gubernatorial primary elections, which have been characterized by low fundraising among all candidates — including by incumbent Governor Phil Scott.

By James Finn

ADDISON COUNTY — Summiting mountains is always easier with friends.

That’s the philosophy behind the Young Adventurers Club, an offshoot of the Addison County-focused Breadloaf Section of the Green Mountain Club.

Lauren Bierman took over as director of the Young Adventurers Club, or YAC, in 2016 with the intent of getting her young sons, seven-year-old Ty and five-year-old Sam, exploring Vermont’s mountains, woods, lakes and streams. She also hoped to burn some of their endless energy in the process.

MIDDLEBURY — On a recent afternoon, Rebekah Irwin hefted a massive tome out of a display case on the bottom floor of Middlebury College’s Davis Family Library and hiked open its heavy calfskin cover. Though you wouldn’t know it from the outside, the interior reveals page after page of spectacular, colorful illustrations — a marvel, given that the ink was laid more than 500 years ago.

MIDDLEBURY — As president of Middlebury College, Laurie Patton’s community work is guided by three principles. Or four, if you count the cauliflower principle.

“The cauliflower principle,” she said in an interview last week, “is that when I go to the store to get cauliflower, I have to be prepared for people to say hello, ask me what’s going on on some particular topic, and comment on what I’m buying.”

Area Democrats to vie in Aug. 14 runoffs for sheriff, House seats

Posted on August 9, 2018 |
By John Flowers



BRISTOL — Local primary elections typically offer few fireworks and are thus notorious for low voter turnout.

But a hotly contested race for sheriff and a crowded runoff for the Addison-4 House district are giving Addison County residents — and particularly Democrats in the Bristol area — extra reasons to vote on Aug. 14.

Local interest is also being generated by Ethan Sonneborn, a 14-year-old Bristol youth who will compete for the Democrat nomination for governor.
