RailroadTracks9656.jpg

MIDDLEBURY — We’ve all seen footage of what happens to a stranded car sitting in the path of an oncoming freight train.

The freight train always wins.

And when it comes to a dispute between a municipality and a freight train, the train seems to have the advantage — a likelihood that Middlebury officials and merchants are learning in their call for modifications to the Vermont Rail Systems (VRS) train schedules during the upcoming replacement of two downtown rail overpasses.

MIDDLEBURY — It was far from the Father’s Day gift that Middlebury resident Jeffrey Schnoor had been expecting.

While other dads were engaged in fun family activities back on June 21, Schnoor and his wife, Leilani, were frantically dealing with a major household disaster wrought by thousands of gallons of nasty sewer water that suddenly spewed from the first-floor toilet of their North Pleasant Street home.

Clippings: News changes, and stays the same

Posted on August 20, 2015 |
By John Flowers



How time flies.

I started as a reporter here at the Addison Independent back in 1990. A quarter-century later, times have changed — as have virtually all the faces with whom I deal in municipal and state government.

Some of the story themes currently on my plate are a lot different than they were 25 years ago.

There wasn’t a murmur about same-sex marriage, let alone civil unions.

Posted on August 13, 2015 |
