The $75,000 is likely to be the first of three, like-sized annual grants VTrans will pass along to Middlebury to aggressively market and support its downtown through 2020, when work will be in full swing on a $71 million tunnel project that will replace two temporary spans.

BRISTOL — Vermonters are dying because they cannot afford health care, Montpelier physician Deb Richter told a gathering of concerned citizens at the Bristol firehouse Thursday night. Patients with little or no health insurance often delay seeking primary care until it is too late, she added.

When you imagine a meal in a Laundromat it’s not glamorous. Maybe you have a candy bar and a bottle of warm soda as you watch your clothes spin around, or perhaps a smashed hamburger from a fast food joint down the road. Either way, it’s not awesome.

That is, it wasn’t awesome until 2010, when Didier and Julianne Murat transformed the original Vergennes Laundromat at 7 Main St. into a French-inspired bakery.

Karl Lindholm: A century of hoop at Middlebury College

Posted on March 1, 2018 |

Only 27 years after Naismith nailed those peach baskets up in the Y, Middlebury College had a basketball team and an intercollegiate schedule.

In that inaugural season, 1917-18, the Middlebury team was undefeated, playing six games, two each against UVM, Norwich, and Saint Michael’s, outscoring their state rivals, 200-83.
