MIDDLEBURY — Local officials here would like to mark the 100th birthday of the Middlebury municipal office building by putting together a plan to destroy the porous structure and replace it with something more utilitarian and energy efficient.

It was on Nov. 5, 2002, that residents voted 1,443-1,334 against a $6 million plan for a new, 13,982-square-foot, two-story municipal office/police building that would have been attached to a renovated municipal gym at the intersection of College and South Main streets.

MIDDLEBURY — Eddie Havens has spent the past 28 years making sure the Middlebury Union High School building has been in tip-top condition for teachers to teach and students to learn.

But recent months have seen Havens, a 52-year-old custodian at MUHS, do a little teaching of his own while tidying up the campus. And it’s a lesson steeped in courage and built on a real-life testimonial on the dangers of smoking.

By John Flowers

But every March, I wish ol’ Ben had been flying his kite instead of brainstorming what I believe to be his most dubious contribution to society: Daylight Saving Time (DST) — setting the clock back one hour in the fall and forward one hour in the spring to maximize the availability of daylight.
