VERGENNES — On Tuesday morning a rapt audience of all Vergennes Union High School students and staff members listened to a man who was once one of the world’s best snowboarders talk about how his life changed “in the blink of an eye” about 10 years ago. He spoke about how he has dealt with that change and is trying to help others face similar adversity.

Speaking in a packed VUHS auditorium was Kevin Pearce, a Vermonter who was once a medal favorite for the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics and is the co-founder of the Love Your Brain Foundation.

DonKeeler2692.jpg

MIDDLEBURY — At age 76, Addison County Sheriff Don Keeler might not move around as well as he used to. But he still puts in a work day that could put a lot of nine-to-fivers to shame.

By day, he manages a workforce of 20 full- and part-time deputies, dispatchers and support staff.

By night, he can often be seen serving writs and other court paperwork to homes and businesses throughout the county.

Chittenden Brook Hut opens_8272 CMYK.jpg

BRANDON — On Sept. 28, the Chittenden Brook Campground in Brandon saw something unusual: a large, construction-size crane wielding one of two halves of a pre-fabricated building in the middle of the Green Mountain National Forest.

The crane was there to install the new Chittenden Brook Hut, the fifth in a network of backcountry buildings under the umbrella of the Vermont Huts Association. Once completed, the Chittenden Brook Hut will be the first new building the organization has built for its network.

Chuck Laramee.jpg

MIDDLEBURY — Twenty-seven years ago, Chuck Laramie had reached his personal abyss.

A slave to alcohol and recreational drugs, he was so intoxicated one night that a police officer insisted on driving him home.

“He asked me what I was going to do when I got home, and I told him I had a loaded .38 (handgun) in my drawer and I was going to stick it in my mouth and get it all over with,” Laramie recalled. “That was my plan if it got real bad — that’s how I was going to end my addiction.”

Vorstevelds spar with Ferrisburgh over roadside tree cutting

Posted on October 8, 2018 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



FERRISBURGH — At an occasionally testy Oct. 2 Ferrisburgh selectboard meeting, the owners of the Vorsteveld Farm and board members continued to spar in what is now a 17-month dispute over the farmers’ April 2017 decision to remove without permission almost 2,000 trees and a hedgerow in the town right-of-way along Arnold Bay Road.

About a dozen Ferrisburgh farmers showed up at the Tuesday meeting to support the Vorsteveld brothers and their right to cut the trees and shrubs in a three-quarter-mile stretch of road running north from Panton near Lake Champlain.

Ballet legend Wendy Whelan shares wisdom with local dancers

By Christopher Ross

MIDDLEBURY — World-renowned ballerina Wendy Whelan’s master class at the Middlebury College Dance Theater last Wednesday was filled with lively sounds — piano and percussion, encouragement from an elite artist and plenty of laughter.

The sounds that spoke most to the magnitude of the occasion, however, were the sounds of silences broken by synchronized gestures made with great concentration: the whisper of toes across the floor; the squeak of leather slippers twisting through pirouettes.

Building a dream house on a budget

Shortly after moving to Vermont from Colorado seven years ago, Jason Mikula built a treehouse in his backyard in Killington, complete with a climbing wall, hammock and zip lines.

The treehouse, 100 square feet with a wrap-around porch, was meant for his children, now ages 8 and 10, but Mikula built it big enough so that he and his wife Polly could stand up inside and enjoy it, too.

Claudia Carl claims space for art on Middlebury's construction fence

Posted on October 8, 2018 |
By Elsie Lynn Parini



FenceArt1620.jpg

Not every artist likes to be boxed in. In fact, very few do. But for Claudia Carl, designing a mural on an 8-by-10-foot grid — er, chain link fence — with small plastic cups sounded, well, fun.

“I have always enjoyed doing designs on graph paper,” said Carl, an artist from Cornwall. “I love geometrics and I love color. Trying to figure out how to do art on the fence sounded like such a fun idea.”
