MIDDLEBURY — A Monday morning fire at the Middlebury College biomass plant has forced the facility offline until repairs can be made.

College officials have determined that the fire began around 7 a.m., and fire crews from Middlebury and Cornwall arrived on scene soon afterward. Crews quickly concentrated the fire to one location within the building, extinguished the flames, and left the scene at about 9:30 a.m. No one was injured in the fire, and employees who had been evacuated from surrounding buildings were allowed to return to work.

Blooms of the toxic blue-green organism growing in Lake Champlain are essentially large, poisonous colonies of photosynthetic bacteria that are caused by high levels of phosphorus and nitrogen nutrients. According to the Vermont Department of Health, algae-contaminated water in the lake led to the deaths of two dogs in 1999 and 2000.

MIDDLEBURY — Gov. Peter Shumlin said on Monday he could not have imagined a more successful inaugural legislative session as the state’s new chief executive officer.

MIDDLEBURY — Kendra Weber Gratton was a toddler 45 years ago when she and her four brothers were first tucked into bed with her mom’s story of “Flabby Rabbit,” who enlists the help of “Squinty Squirrel” and other forest friends in protecting “Millie Robin’s” four eggs.

But the logs are part of a three-year joint project of Cornell University and the University of Vermont that examines the viability of shiitake mushrooms as cash crops. They have been inoculated with shiitake spores, and, if all goes well, will begin fruiting next year.
