MIDDLEBURY — Lt. Gov. David Zuckerman is asking voters to give him another two years to advance a political agenda that includes a livable wage, a Vermont-branded milk industry that could help struggling dairy farmers, advances in high-speed Internet and cell phone coverage, and passage of a law to regulate and tax recreational marijuana in a way that would raise money for education and economic development advances.

Storm cafe to close CMYK.jpg

MIDDLEBURY — It’s a storm that many Addison County residents had hoped would rage on, unabated.

“It’s really hard,” John Hughes said during a recent interview. “If I could stay in this location, I wouldn’t be done.”

SOUTH LINCOLN — Driving around Vermont in late October has always presented Jim Apgar with some unusual technical challenges. It’s not the truck or the roads or the routes — they’re fine. It’s not the tools of his trade as a contractor.

It’s the 700-pound pumpkin, the one it took a team of helpers to bring home, a Sawzall to carve and a forklift to set in place atop the truck.

MIDDLEBURY — Four hundred sculptures disappeared outside the Davis Family Library at Middlebury College on Tuesday and no one did anything to stop it. Some witnesses expressed mixed feelings about it. Many took photographs. But by evening there was nothing left to see.

GraceExperience4007.jpg

MIDDLEBURY — Lincoln native Grace Experience, who stars in the upcoming Middlebury Actors Workshop production of “The Turn of the Screw,” grew up in a swirl of creative energy. Her mother (Victoria Blewer) works with paint and photographs, her father (Chris Bohjalian) with words. But when she talks about childhood inspiration Grace Experience talks about discipline.

“My parents get up early and do the work,” she said. “It’s not that loosey-goosey artistic style you hear about.”
