MIDDLEBURY — Have you ever wondered why the wires in your cell phone are so big and inefficient? No?

Well, it’s something that Middlebury College chemistry student Peter Dykeman-Bermingham has thought about. A lot.

My two sisters are — and have always been — my closest allies.

Family works like that, if you’re lucky, and I count myself among the luckiest.

OK, our parents split early in our childhoods and there were some years in there that weren’t all awesome in terms of the “perfect family” ranking, but my sisters and I came out of it stronger, together.

We’re close in age; my younger sister, Elsie, was born almost exactly three years after my older sister, Polly — and I was smack dab in between.

MIDDLEBURY — Jamie Montague has always been drawn to communities offering an array of environmental and recreational assets — such as spacious parks and rustic walking trails. So landing a job in which she will manage many such assets for the Middlebury Area Land Trust (MALT) was akin to winning the lottery for Montague.

Montague, 30, succeeds Carl Robinson as executive director of MALT, a nonprofit organization that so far has conserved more than 2,600 acres of land, farms, forests, wetlands and recreational areas in and around Middlebury.
