MIDDLEBURY — When Liz Cronin began battling breast cancer in 1999, her teammates on the Middlebury Otters women’s ice hockey club rallied around her and launched the “Face Off Against Breast Cancer” tournament.

KolbPainting3350.jpg

MIDDLEBURY — Lincoln artist Kathleen Kolb has been painting enchantingly radiant, realistic scenes of local forestry for two decades.
