By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — The owners of the Appalachian Gap Distillery are proposing to triple its 2,000-square-foot headquarters at 88 Mainelli Road in Middlebury’s industrial park. The addition would give the growing business additional warehouse space to house its whiskey barrels, more room for grain storage and a larger tasting room, and would allow for installation of a bottling line.

The additional space will help the distillery ramp up production of its growing line of whiskey, rum and tequila — spirits that are growing in popularity.

MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury College President Ron Liebowitz hopes to be recalled as someone who during his 11 years in office worked to fortify the institution’s relationship with the town of Middlebury — not only through financial contributions to many community projects, but also by helping to redefine the tenor of town-gown conversations.

MIDDLEBURY — A lot of healing takes place within the walls of Porter Medical Center. But tucked away on a small sliver of the Porter campus lies a resource designed to keep people from needing to tap into hospital services.

JackieNienow8685.jpg

MIDDLEBURY — One of Jackie Nienow’s most vivid childhood memories is of her father bringing home a classroom-size chalkboard that had been orphaned by renovations to a nearby school.

“I was in fourth grade and I taught school all the time in the neighborhood; I even had parent conferences,” Nienow chuckled in recalling how she put the chalkboard — and her blossoming teaching talents — to good early use. “My mother used tell me, ‘Think about all the free child care you’re providing.’”
